Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds
Today’s portion is from Exodus 27:20–30:10 it is called Tetzaveh which means “you command”
clear olive oil was brought to the High Priest to light lamps regularly in the Tabernacle.
Aaron was given a breast piece called the Hoshen and several other priest accessories. Urim and Thummim stones were used inside the breastpiece of decision. Pomegranates and gold bells were attached to the High Priest’s clothes to make known exit and entrance.
Priests would be ordained by the sacrifice of a young bull, two rams, unleavened bread, unleavened cakes with oil mixed in, and unleavened wafers spread with oil. Moses led a bull to the front of the Tabernacle, let Aaron and his sons lay their hands upon the bull’s head, slaughter the bull at the entrance of the Tent, and put some of the bull’s blood on the horns of the altar.
Moses took a ram, let Aaron and his sons lay their hands upon the ram’s head, slaughter the ram, and put some of its blood on the ridge of the right ear of Aaron’s and his sons’ right ears, also on the thumbs and big toes of their right feet and hands.
God promised to meet and speak with Moses and the Israelites there, to abide among the Israelites, and be their God.
Moses made an incense altar of acacia wood overlaid with gold aka the Golden Altar.
And that is Tetzaveh in 60 seconds.
