HafTorah:  Ezekiel 43:10-27

T'rumah (Donation) Sh'mot Exodus 25-27

Torah Portion: T’rumah (Donation) Sh’mot Exodus 25-27

HafTorah:  I Kings 5:26-6:13

This week we read the Torah section named T’rumah or donations in English. This portion begins with the instructions for gathering the materials and building the Mishkan/Tabernacle in the wilderness.  An interesting fact, in the book of Sh’mot/Exodus 40 % of the book is talking about this process and the end results. That gives us some idea of the importance of what we read when we study the Mishkan.
