Torah our daily bread:

  • 25:30 And you shall set the bread of the Presence on the table before me regularly

The Menorah (candlestick): has come to symbolise the very essence of Torah life and
observance. With six branches, three on each side and one centre shaft, we arrive at the very G-dly
number of seven. Six is the earthly and universal creation that took place, and the seventh
component is the completeness of the deity, and the giver of the Torah...Barchu Ata Noten
HaTorah. The manner of working six days and resting on the seventh...Shabbat

  • 25:31 “You shall make a lampstand of pure gold. The lampstand shall be made of
    hammered work: its base, its stem, its cups, its calyxes, and its flowers shall be of one
    piece with it. 32 And there shall be six branches going out of its sides, three branches of
    the lampstand out of one side of it and three branches of the lampstand out of the other
    side of it; 33 three cups made like almond blossoms, each with calyx and flower, on one
    branch, and three cups made like almond blossoms, each with calyx and flower, on the
    other branch—so for the six branches going out of the lampstand

Moshe whilst on Sinai for forty days and forty nights was taught details of the construction

  • 25:39 It shall be made, with all these furnishings, out of a talent of pure gold 40 Note well,
    and follow the patterns for them that are being shown you on the mountain

We can use other teachings if it allows us to understand more fully the written Torah and not nullify
it. Moshe was taught in part on the mountain forty days and nights and also the subsequent
travails in the desert at the tent of meeting. This next passage explains this point and is
concerning the boards about the altar

  • 27:8 Make it hollow, of boards. As you were shown on the mountain, so shall they be made

The foundation for mankind is the written Torah. It is up to men to seek HaShem and the Almighty
wants the humble hearted who are turning to him voluntarily. This is how he knows you want to be
close to him and this is pleasing odor to him....the exalted One. Moshe's Torah is the one that is in
place and will not change...there will be no other prophet like Moshe

  • Deut 34:10 Never again did there arise in Israel a prophet like Moses--whom the Lord
    singled out, face to face

Biblical Israel is Torah given to Moshe, and to accept the G-d of Israel is to walk in his Torah. The
gentiles in the nations who seek repentance are to reconcile with the Abrahamic covenant...a
nation of priests and Holy nation through Torah and we must each seek HaShem and his
priesthood. Many faiths, advocate the teachings of Sha'ul do away with the Torah. The next
passage is one of the many that is used to put forward this thought. The Torah is Holy and written
with the finger of G-d and given to Moshe to teach. The Torah caused sin to be exposed, and this
is the enmity and not the Torah itself. How can the Holy Torah be enmity...this is the same as
saying that HaShem is so. The written Torah clarified the teachings and ordinances that were
given to Moshe on Sinai. Those that curse the Torah as evil, are cursing the G-d of Israel.

The Tabernacle: Likewise in this Torah we read the details given to Moshe on its construction

  • 26:1 “Moreover, you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen and
    blue and purple and scarlet yarns; you shall make them with cherubim skillfully worked
    into them

The Altar:

  • 27:1 “You shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits broad. The
    altar shall be square, and its height shall be three cubits.

Clearly HaShem does not want us to make a tabernacle as listed in the Torah and so what
relevance is it to us. Just as the Torah is the greatest light, its component parts in understanding
HaShem are given to us to study. The materials were the best that can be produced from the earth
and by man and so must our offerings to HaShem be the best we can do. Without excuse turn and
find time for Torah study and build our days on top of that. A person is equal the best he can do
under their circumstances.....

Baruch HaShem
Terumah "Gift Offering" Shemot 25:1-27:19    
Published 15th Day 12th Month 5772    
We know from the preceding and last verses of the 24:18 that Moshe is atop Sinai when he is given these
instructions. Voluntary offerings, given by those who seek the natural realm is the most pleasing concept says
Torah. Offerings and sacrifice allude to this form of giving and is related to the best a person has. If a rich person
has much then they are not greater than a poor person who gives the best they can. The offerings are to
distributed to the Torah community and are for people. All should be cared for... Terumah Torah portion deals with
the building and setting up of the temporary tabernacle in the desert. However, we can see that a temple of Torah
study is what is asked for which can be wherever a person finds them selves
. This is multitude of people who
have separated through tumultuous events of nature from an evil slavery and now in a wilderness still
experiencing supernatural happenings. They now build a tabernacle and sanctuary to the creator of the universe
withe offerings from the entire community

  • 26:3 This is the contribution that you should take from them: gold, silver, and copper 4 blue, purple,
    scarlet, fine linen, (hair) from goats 5 reddened skins from rams, multi colored skins, acacia wood 6 oil for
    lighting, spices for the anointing oil and for the aromatic incense 7 Beryl stones, stones for setting, to set
    in the ephod and in the breast piece

The tabernacle in the wilderness does allow us to see that we can each and everyone person choose G-d by
following Torah and thus present our offering of the best we can afford. The Arc containing the teachings was
also built by Moshe and the people. It is not possible to recognise or get proximity to Ha-Shem unless its done
his way.....the Almighty sets the precedences and not by human makings

  • 25:10 “They shall make an ark of acacia wood. Two cubits and a half shall be its length, a cubit and a half
    its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height. 11 You shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and outside shall
    you overlay it, and you shall make on it a molding of gold around it.

The Arc was always to have the carrying poles permanently attached to it by four gold rings attached to its four
corners. The Arc is always ready to be moved. So are we to be clean inside and out with whole and complete
Torah observance. Peoples proximity to the most holy of places is guarded lest we offer alien fire and perish.
Great care is needed in making sure we begin and continue Torah and seek proximity to the Arc and its contents.
We should not endeavour to enter the Arc but follow and be humble to its Holy Moshe was to be chosen
for all things regarding nature and the truth. To seek the inside of the Holy Arc without permission to do so is
elevating ones self to far. In a persons new found knowledge of the creation sometimes we can jump to quick. It
is important to lower oneself and stay under Torah...

  • 25:15 The poles shall remain in the rings of the arc: they shall not be removed from it 16 And deposit in
    the Ark the Pact which I will give you

Refined as Gold: The details for the adornments for the tabernacle are quite awesome. We will also become
refined as gold through fire and sculpturing, and so be enveloped with the Torah and the purity of heaven.
HaShem created the fruits of the earth and so he decides who, how, what and where concerning there use.

  • 25:17 “You shall make a mercy seat of pure gold. Two cubits and a half shall be its length, and a cubit
    and a half its breadth

Keruvim: Symbolic depictions described in the Torah helps us understand the laws of nature that affect all our
lives. The judges created by a holy G-d to serve the creation and maintain it through science and natured we
accept that the Torah is teaching mankind how to live by the laws of nature then the beings described are not
mystical objects to be worshiped...indeed here we read how HaShem is appointing his highest heavenly realm to
facility his creation and allow his will to be an earthly reality of Torah study for all long as we do the
work and seek

  • 25:18 And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work shall you make them, on the two ends
    of the mercy seat. 19 Make one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end. Of one piece
    with the mercy seat shall you make the cherubim on its two ends. 20 The cherubim shall spread out their
    wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, their faces one to another; toward the mercy
    seat shall the faces of the cherubim be. 21 And you shall put the mercy seat on the top of the ark, and in
    the ark you shall put the testimony that I shall give you. 22 There I will meet with you, and from above the
    mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the testimony, I will speak with you about
    all that I will give you in commandment for the people of Israel
