Shushan Purim Katan
Prepared by Rabbi Stephen Texon
In last week's Torah reading, Terumah, we read the details of the construction of the Tabernacle, the sanctuary in the desert. In this week's Parshah, Tetzaveh, we discover the special garments worn by the priests and high priest when serving in the Tabernacle. G-d gives instructions to Moses regarding the seven-day inauguration for the Tabernacle.
G-d commands the Jews to use the purest of olive oils for the daily kindling of the Menorah. Moses is instructed to consecrate Aaron and his sons by dressing them in special priestly garments.
The procedure for consecrating Aaron and his sons as priests is prescribed. Aaron and his sons were brought to the gate of the sanctuary, immersed in a mikvah (ritual pool), and dressed in priestly garments. Moses then offered several inaugural sacrifices on their behalf.
G-d instructs the Jews to offer two burnt offerings daily for perpetuity; one lamb in the morning and one in the afternoon. G-d promises to dwell in the Tabernacle.
