Vayakhel-Pekudei, this week’s double Torah portion, is about building the Tabernacle. Many of you are right now asking yourself the same question that I asked when I first heard this… what was the Tabernacle? The Tabernacle was a portable sanctuary. Back then it was a tent, and it would be set up wherever the Israelites camped while wandering the desert. It was first used a year after the Israelites were freed from Egypt.
