The detail is there so that a builder would have precise instructions to follow. It might not be exciting reading but it gives us what we need. Reply

Tabernacle construction Please take the word tedious out of your vocabulary. Your lesson and explanation on the construction of the Tabernacle was amazing. This is the first detailed description I have heard and you put in wonderful explanations of it all with added sources that no one could possibly come away without knowing that this was not only G-d's work, but also a real work of art; the craftsmanship is a marvel. Thank you for your hard work on this lesson. Is there anyway to get a copy of the hand outs for this lecture (Terumah: 4th Portion)? Reply

why why, oh why, must the Torah go into such details? I don't see any moral lessons from these. but, then, maybe it's me Reply

One facet: The building of something holy for Hashem to dwell in, must be constructed exactly how Hashem directs and with numerous directives....alluding to the 613 mitzvot Reply

To me, they are fascinating You told "tedious technical portion". To me, these verses about Mishkan constraction are so fascinating. Reply
