Terumah 2018-19

Join Beth Tikkun for a discussion of Parshah Terumah, a portion focused on the construction of the Tabernacle. As we explore this God-designed teaching picture – the lengthiest topic in the Torah – we begin with a brief look at each of the various elements of the Tabernacle. We then examine several patterns and teachings present in this dwelling place for God, including the elevation of the mundane, God’s indwelling of our lives, the human being pictured in the Tabernacle, and God’s foundational pattern of “1 becomes 2 becomes 1.” Finally, we look at “faulty mishkans,” tabernacles missing elements representing common areas of lack in the human being.

    One small question, you mentioned that Aaron’s staff that budded, was inside the ark. In Number’s 17:10 it was put in front of the ark. Was that a mistranslation, or was it later put inside the ark? Thanks.

    Grant: While re-listening to this teaching, I caught something this time that made me sit up and take notice. You were speaking about the concept of brokenness and mentioned that God took Adam’s tzelem, his side, to create Eve. In prior teachings, you said tzelem was the Hebrew word translated image. I found this interesting, and I suppose I’m asking for a clarification of the Hebrew, because if it’s a case of tzelem meaning image and side, how fascinating that we are created in Adonai’s image and possibly, if I understood you, from His side!

    Also, the altar of incense being a picture of prayer reminded me that you said the “Lord’s Prayer” was a beginner’s prayer. You mentioned another passage upon which to pattern our prayers, and I’m hoping you can direct me to it.

    Thank you.

    That was probably just a misunderstanding. The word for ‘side’ is צלע (tzela) which sounds very similar to צלם (tzelem).
