Audio Shiur: Parshat Vayakhel-Pekudei: Building a Mishkan, Building a State

Audio Shiur:
Parshat Vayakhel-Pekudei: Building a Mishkan, Building a State

The artisans who built the Mishkan didn't actually put it together, but brought it to Moshe in pieces, Ikea style. Why didn't they finish and bring him a finished building? According to Rashi, they couldn't. Yet, Rashi (and the Midrash) convey a message that related not only the to Mishkan, but to all of us, and to the building of the State of Israel. We conclude by reading a wonderful piece from Siach Shaul, based on talks of Rav Shaul Yisraeli.
