Event Date: 11 Nissan, 5742 • April 04, 1982
Even after a week of consecration for the Holy Tabernacle, the Jews still did not merit for G-d Himself to consecrate the Tabernacle.

The Torah instructs us that as long as we are alive, our mission is alive and we must do no less than previously. ExpandMore
