Adonai told Moshe to give the Israelites instructions to build a מִשְׁכָּן – a special thing for the Israelites to take with them בַּמִּדְבָּר. The מִשְׁכָּן was a special place for Adonai to be. The Torah gives specific instructions for how the Israelites were to build the מִשְׁכָּן. It was to be built with fine cloths, gold, silver, and rare gems, and made with excellent craftsmanship. The Torah also gives specific instructions for how the Levites were to carry the מִשְׁכָּן on poles as the Israelites travelled, and how to set up the מִשְׁכָּן when the Israelites set up their camp at night.


Exodus 35

שְׁמוֹת ל״ה

22) So the men and women came, everyone with a willing heart. They brought beautiful pins and earrings and rings and all kinds of gold things, …

23) And every man who had with him blue or purple or scarlet cloth… brought it.

25) And every woman who was skilled with her hands, spun cloth, and brought what they had spun – blue and purple and scarlet…

כב  וַיָּבֹאוּ הָאֲנָשִׁים, עַלהַנָּשִׁים; כֹּל נְדִיב לֵב, הֵבִיאוּ חָח וָנֶזֶם וְטַבַּעַת וְכוּמָז כָּלכְּלִי זָהָב, וְכָלאִישׁ, אֲשֶׁר הֵנִיף תְּנוּפַת זָהָב לַיהוָה.

כג  וְכָלאִישׁ אֲשֶׁרנִמְצָא אִתּוֹ, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִיהֵבִיאוּ.

כה  וְכָלאִשָּׁה חַכְמַתלֵב, בְּיָדֶיהָ טָווּ; וַיָּבִיאוּ מַטְוֶה, אֶתהַתְּכֵלֶת וְאֶתהָאַרְגָּמָן, אֶתתּוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי, וְאֶתהַשֵּׁשׁ.

30) Moshe said to the people of Israel, “See, Adonai has called by name Betzalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, from the tribe of Yehudah,

31) and Adonai has filled him with the spirit of Elohim, with wisdom and understanding and knowledge of how to do all kinds of work,

32) to make designs for working with gold and silver and bronze…

35) and to design with blue and purple and scarlet cloth…

ל  וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶלבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, רְאוּ קָרָא יְהוָה בְּשֵׁם, בְּצַלְאֵל בֶּןאוּרִי בֶןחוּר, לְמַטֵּה יְהוּדָה.

לא  וַיְמַלֵּא אֹתוֹ, רוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, בְּחָכְמָה בִּתְבוּנָה וּבְדַעַת, וּבְכָלמְלָאכָה.

לב  וְלַחְשֹׁב, מַחֲשָׁבֹתלַעֲשֹׂת בַּזָּהָב וּבַכֶּסֶף, וּבַנְּחֹשֶׁת.

לה  מִלֵּא אֹתָם חָכְמַתלֵב, לַעֲשׂוֹת כָּלמְלֶאכֶת חָרָשׁ וְחֹשֵׁב, וְרֹקֵם בַּתְּכֵלֶת וּבָאַרְגָּמָן בְּתוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי וּבַשֵּׁשׁ, וְאֹרֵג; עֹשֵׂי, כָּלמְלָאכָה, וְחֹשְׁבֵי, מַחֲשָׁבֹת.

Exodus 36

שְׁמוֹת ל״ו

5) Betzalel said to Moshe, “The people are bringing much more than enough to do the work that Adonai commanded us to do.”

6) So Moshe issued a command, and it went out through the camp, “Let no man and woman do more work to bring any more things…”

7) because they had enough, …more than enough…

ה  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֶלמֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר, מַרְבִּים הָעָם לְהָבִיא, מִדֵּי הָעֲבֹדָה לַמְּלָאכָה, אֲשֶׁרצִוָּה יְהוָה לַעֲשֹׂת אֹתָהּ.

ו  וַיְצַו מֹשֶׁה, וַיַּעֲבִירוּ קוֹל בַּמַּחֲנֶה לֵאמֹר, אִישׁ וְאִשָּׁה אַליַעֲשׂוּעוֹד מְלָאכָה, לִתְרוּמַת הַקֹּדֶשׁ; וַיִּכָּלֵא הָעָם, מֵהָבִיא.

ז  וְהַמְּלָאכָה, הָיְתָה דַיָּם לְכָלהַמְּלָאכָהלַעֲשׂוֹת אֹתָהּ; וְהוֹתֵר.
