Week 19 - "T'rumah" (תְּרוּמָה, Hebrew for "gift" or "offering")
Comments about this week's Torah Portion
The meaning of this week's parashaht (Terumah "תְּרוּמָה") which is Hebrew for "gift" or "offering". The pictures of the Tabernacles above were the first thing I thought of when I was reading over the Torah portion this evening. Over time, I've come to the conclusion that even if it seems meaningless there is always a reason for specific details in the Bible. This weeks Torah portion was so awesome and meaningful to me. Honestly, it took me a while to get through the portion in Exodus but I was stopping per each instruction (The Sanctuary Offerings, the Ark, the Table, the Lampstand, the Curtains, the Altar, the Court of the Tabernacle, etc) and trying to picture the proccess of how they were made, what they might of looked like and the meanings and symbols behind each of the things that God instructed Moses to make.

Comments about this week's Haftarah Portion
I also noticed an overall theme of how the study this week shows us a shadow of what's to come. We preparations here for the temple and how were perperations made and how it bridges the Torah portion and the portion from Brit Hadasha - God dwelling among ("אדם") man, Adam, his creation, us!!!
[New Testament - Brit Hadasha]
Matthew 5:33-37, Hebrews 8:1-6, 9:23-24, 10:1
Comments about this week's portion from the Brit Hadasha
This is the portion ties the revelation of the end from the beginning with this week's overall theme. How it was made holy (kadosh) through Jesus. It's so cool how the portion from Brit Hadasha this week penetrates the lines that would proabably would have gone completely unnoticed. Given that we read those passages back to back. So Cool!!! 🙌
