TORAH PORTION  
Vayak'heil - P'kudei ... [Moses] Assembled / 
[The] Records [of the Tabernacle]
Exodus 35:1-40:38
These are the records of the Tabernacle, the Tabernacle of the Pact, which were drawn up at Moses' bidding--the work of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest. - Exodus 38:21
Moses then convoked the whole Israelite community and said to them: "These are the things that the Eternal has commanded you to do."
- Exodus 35:1


SUMMARY:
· Moses teaches the rules of Shabbat. (35:1-3)
· Moses asks the Israelites for a donation of gifts and those who are skilled help build the Mishkan [Tabernacle] under the direction of Bezalel and Oholiab. (35:4-38:20)
· A statistical summary of the materials used for the Tabernacle and an account of producing the priestly vestments are recorded. Moses blesses the Israelites for the work they did. (38:21-39:42)
· Upon God's instruction, Moses sets up the Mishkan and the priests are anointed and consecrated. (40:1-33)
· A description is given of a cloud that covers the Mishkan by day and a fire that burns by night, indicating God's Presence therein. (40:33-38)

Mitzvah Moments

 NOAH MOORE
March 24, 2018
For my Bar Mitzvah project, I will be working with  Live Safe
to help their efforts in providing social services and emergency housing to victims of, domestic violence, elder abuse, and sexual assault. 
         My project centers on helping the families who receive these critical services. In many cases the clients of LiveSafe must leave their current living situation with little or no notice, to escape from violence and abuse. Many essential items are left behind such as, basic toiletries. I will be collecting the following items to help them. Please new or unopened items only.
  • Toothpaste  *  Deodorant  *  Shampoo * Conditioner
  • Feminine pads * Floss * Tooth brushes * Lotion * Soap
  • Travel pillows (unused or new) * Twin sheet sets

MILES BASKIN
April 21, 2018
As part of my bar mitzvah project, I will be helping a shelter for
homeless teens, Covenant House, by collecting socks for the teens
sheltered there. At Covenant House, homeless teens are sheltered
and cared for, but they are always in need of new clothes and other necessities. Please donate any new or unused socks you can to these
homeless teens. I will have a collection bin at the temple, 
or you can find me most Sunday mornings and Friday nights.
