Did you ever wonder why almost half of the book of Exodus, which is described as the book of redemption, discusses the building of the Tabernacle? What’s the Tabernacle’s role in the Jewish people. Was it just a grand synagogue? A place to pray and serve G-d? Or did it have a higher function?

Join me as we discover the deeper role that the tabernacle played in the Jewish people, keeping them connected to Sinai, even after they travelled away. And, how even today we too can connect to that!

This podcast is dedicated in honor of my good friend and old chevrusa, Yosef Segal (not related šŸ™‚ ). May the Torah study that results from it be a great merit for him and his beautiful family!
