This week Rabbi Yitzchak and William discuss the weekly Torah portion of Terumah. This portion discusses the contributions requested of the children of Israel for the construction of the Mishkah (Tabernacle). This holy structure is often contrasted with the Golden Calf by the Sages of Judaism. So, our hosts ask themselves and the audience what type of structures are we really building? Is it a holy space for the Creator to dwell in our midst, or is it a structure related to the physical world, that only exists as a form with no holy inner space?
