Hi! and Good Shabbos!

I am sorry for the delay in posting, and hope this reaches you  before Shabbos.

Amazing idea I heard about this weeks parshios= Vayakhel and Pekudei, they are all about the mishkan and bigdei kehuna....exactly what Terumah and Tetzaveh were about.

How odd.

Yet, in between Terumah and Tetzaveh, comes Ki Sisa, (cheit haegel- yikes!), so it must be that we learn something new in Ki Sisa that allows a shift to take place in how we view this weeks parshios.

I heard Rav Cable say that Terumah and Tetzaveh are when we learn about what to do and Vayakhel and Pekudei we start to actually do.

So how does Ki Sisa teach us how to do?  It's one thing to discuss, and another to follow through.

I recommend going back to my favorite phrase: Mi l'Hashem Elai: Whoever is to Hashem, come to me, - meaning, if in every moment that we are in, we pause and re-connect to Hashem, we will be able to follow through and LIVE a life of connection to Hashem.(There's also the idea that we need to fall, experience the darkness, so that we can return to Hashem and surrender to having Him show us what we need to do.)

Pick the pasuk or phrase that means something to you and use it over and over, while cleaning for Pesach, especially.

More on Pesach, to follow, IyH (with the phone number to dial in- how about if we meet next motzai Shabbos, instead of this one...)

Love, aviva rus
