VIDEO: Parashat VaYekhal Pikudey

A commentary on the weekly Torah portion.

Commentary on Parashat Vayakhel (And He Assembled)

Moran writes, "In our Scripture reading this week, we see a continuation of last week’s portion regarding what we are to do with the treasures that God has entrusted to us."

Parashat Vayakhel/Pekudei – Ex. 35:1 – 40:38

Jonathan writes, "Anointing declares something to be set apart for G-d, to become holy and consecrated. And that anointing, that holiness, is meant to be contagious."

"Waiting on the Lord can be difficult; but the more we understand about his character, the more we learn that he is worth the wait."

Commentary on Parashat Ki Tisa

Joseph writes, "The children of Israel were down at the foot of the mountain – prepared to receive the Torah – cleansed, and impatient and they ask Aaron to give them a god that will walk before them and lead them to the promised land and out of the desert."

Thoughts on Parashat Ki Tisa

Michael writes, "This “sum” seems to have two purposes: first is to guarantee the running of the Mishkan; second, which seems a little suspicious, is to protect against plagues. Was Israel to “pay the Almighty” protection money?"

Parashat Ki Tissa – Ex. 30:11 – 34:35

Jonathan writes, "What, then, lies across the faces of the thousands of men and women in this country and around the world who cannot see Yeshua? What is it that stops them from seeing what seems so obvious to us?"

Commentary on Parashat Ki Tisa (When You Lift Up)

Moran writes, "In our Scripture portion this week, we can see that whatever God asks or requires of us, He will also give us the tools through which to do it."

Thoughts on Parashat Tetzaveh

Michael writes, "Neglecting to be obedient to His command can have potentially disastrous effects. We cannot tell if the book of Esther would have been written had Saul destroyed the Amalekites just as we cannot tell the result of our disobedience, except in hindsight."

Commentary on Parashat Tetzaveh (You Shall Command)

Moran writes, "In this week’s Torah portion, we find an amazing indication of something that was to be fulfilled in Messiah Yeshua."
