Terumah 5782

Sunday, February 6, 2022

The Ramban on the opening verse to the Parsha explains that once Bnei Yisroel accepted upon themselves that they would be Hashem's people and that they would follow the Torah, they were now worthy of housing the Divine Presence in their midst. The Mishkan would function as a mini "Mt. Sinai" for Bnei Yisroel. The same glory that rested on the mountain would dwell in the Mishkan. Moshe's interactions with Hashem would be the same way he spoke with Hashem on Mt. Sinai. Why was it important that the Mishkan resemble Mt. Sinai? I would like to suggest that Hashem felt it was important to maintain a constant reminder to Bnei Yisroel about their experience receiving the Torah and the idea of consistency. Waking up to such a presence would motivate the people to continue in the ways of Hashem and further improve their relationship with Him.
