Exodus chapter 27, verse 20 to chapter 30, verse 10

Torah for Today

(scenarios) What would you do?

  1. You are invited by a friend to go to his mosque. You’ve never been to one. What do you think you should wear? Why?
  2. Every religion has its definition of holy objects. Your friend’s church was damaged in a fire. What can you do to help?


What Does This Parshah Mean to Me?

  1. Why do you think the portion goes into so much detail about what the priests would wear?
  2. What surprised you about all these descriptions?
  3. How are rabbis ordained today? Speak to a rabbi to find out.
  4. Look at the last few lines of the portion, where the description of the altar can be found. What do you think “alien incense” is?
  5. What is the ner tamid? Where do you find it today? Why do you think it should never be extinguished?
