,Dorothy Perlmuter.Rabbi Wein - Parshas Terumah -The Devil Is In The DetailsAll biblical commentators have puzzled forages over the main topic of this week’s parsha - themishkan/tabernacle and its construction. Why doesGod need a building, so to speak, to dwell in? Whyall of the details in the Torah regarding this essen-tially temporary building and its artifacts? And whydoes the Torah, which in so many other instances isso concise and chary about words, devote entirelong chapters to the details of the mishkan/tabernacle? Many different theories regarding thesedifficulties have been proposed.We all know that it is from the description ofthe “work” that went into the construction of themishkan/tabernacle that the definitions of thethirty-nine main categories of “work” on Shabbatare derived and therefore the Torah had to go intosuch detail. Yet the question begs itself as to whythe Torah did not state these thirty-nine types of“work” directly when it described the institution ofthe Shabbat to us.The masters of kabala read into the descrip-tions of the mishkan/tabernacle great hidden se-crets and explanations of out universe and its untoldmysteries and wonders. They even saw in this de-tailed description a revelation of the “real” world ofHeaven and what that spiritual realm looks like. Butthe Torah, though containing seventy differentfaces - and with mysticism certainly one of thosefaces, it primarily possesses a simple, declarativeaspect to it. And it is that face that is most difficultto understand and to deal with regarding the mish-kan/tabernacle.Dvar Continued on Page 3.

YIWH GEMS & JEWELS GALA DINNERThe Dinner Committee is working very hard on this year’s Gems and Jewels Gala Dinner, honoringTsion and Anita Cohen and Steven and Debra Luger. By now you should have received your invitation andwe hope you plan to attend the dinner and support our Scroll of Honor.Part of the evening’s festivities will be a Silent Auction. We have several items ready for auction butare looking for more. Please consider what you do for a living and the service providers you use on a regu-lar basis. A donation of an item or a gift certificate would be tremendously helpful.The YIWH Solicitation Committee is diligently working with potential donors for the Scroll ofHonor. We have attached the merchant solicitation letter and request that everyone ask family members(many of whom come to YIWH as guests during the course of a year) and companies they do business within helping us reach our fundraising goal.In addition to a fun, and special night honoring the Cohens and the Lugers, we desperately need toraise significant funds to continue to maintain and grow our shul. In these tough economic times, we un-derstand that not everyone is in the financial position to contribute as generously as they may want to, orhave in the past. To that end, volunteering is another great way to give back! The Dinner Committee islooking for additional people to assist in making this fundraiser a huge success. We are specifically lookingfor volunteers to help us run the silent auction, another way we can bring in much - needed money. Noone person can do this alone. If we all work together we can make this event a huge success. Please take amoment to seriously consider giving some of your time to the one institution that gives back to you everyday. You may contact Harriet Rosenblit, Fran Wittenberg, or Shayne Kesler if you would like to help.Thank you,YIWH Fundraising Dinner Committee
Dvar Continued from page 1I have never found any easy answers to the questions above. They are apparently part of the mys-teries of Torah itself, part of the holiness that is beyond our rational understanding and appreciation. But,certainly, there are lessons - important life lessons that can be learned from the Torah’s emphasis on thedescription of the mishkan/tabernacle.One lesson in life is that the devil is in the details. Everyone agrees that to build a holy sanctuary is anoble and necessary task for humans to undertake. But, the details of how to go about doing it and what itis supposed to look like when built are always fraught with disagreement and sometimes even disillusion.The Torah, therefore, gave us a specific outline as to how it should be built and how it should appear. TheTorah, through its mitzvoth and values, does the same for our daily physical and spiritual lives – our veryexistence.A second lesson is that humans build the house of God, so to speak, and not God Himself. God maynot need the mishkan/tabernacle but humans do need such a place in a tangible, real form. Our earthly na-ture demands such a physical presence. This is especially true regarding Judaism, which allows for nophysical representation of God in any way. Our construction of the mishkan/tabernacle is our way of at-tempting, so to speak, to reach God and connect with the ineffable and eternal. In dealing with the mish-kan/tabernacle, we are really dealing with our own immortality and innate connection to the Creator.Shabbat shalom Rabbi Berel Wein
