Teruma: Setting a Table for God

Posted by Neima Novetsky on February 28, 2017
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Terumah

In this week’s parsha podcast, Neima Novetsky looks into the question of what need does God have for a table and bread? Presumably none, so what role does this vessel play in the Tabernacle? How might it have helped the nation itself as they try to form a relationship with God?
