Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds

Today’s portion is from Exodus 25:1–27:19 it is called Terumah which means “gift” or “offering”

It was time to build the Tabernacle. The Israelites gave God many gifts for this project. The Ark of the Covenant was crafted with acacia wood and overlaid with gold. The tablets were placed inside. Two cherubim of gold were place on the ark’s cover or mercy seat. God promised to speak the commandments to Moses from between the two cherubim above the cover of the Ark.

A gold table with a crown was made for displaying bread.

One six-branched and seven-lamped stand of pure gold was crafted. The Tabernacle was crafted with ten strips of fine twisted linen, of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, with a design of cherubim worked into them. 11 cloths of goats’ hair made a tent over the Tabernacle.
Planks, curtains for the Holy of Holies, and altar and other enclosures were crafted for the Tabernacle.

God instructed every little detail down to the last thread of everything.

And that is Terumah in 60 seconds.
