Pekudei: Chapter 29

"And they brought the Tabernacle to Moses"


We are told here of the time when Moses erected the Tabernacle and everything in it was brought before him. He was unable to enter into the Tent of Testimony because of the cloud that was in it. A comparison is drawn to a wife preparing herself and adorning herself for her husband, as Malchut comes to Zeir Anpin. We read of the prevalence of the color blue in the Tabernacle and are told of the 'plate of pure gold' that is inscribed "Holiness to Hashem."
