Vayakhel: What Does It Mean To Be Tzelem Elokim?

Tzelem Elokim

The mishkan and Shabbat are juxtaposed in this week’s parsha, which leads our Sages to connect the two in the labor we desist from on Shabbat. But what is the thematic, conceptual connection between the mishkan and Shabbat? In this exciting and daring video, Rabbi Fohrman draws from the creation story and the first Shabbat, and challenges us to be more God-like in our actions.
