Parshah Terumah

This week’s Parshah is Terumah, deals primarily with the construction of the Mishkan. The Mishkan traveled with the Children of Israel form the time of it’s initial construction until king Solomon built the Beit HaMikdash. And even then, the Mishkan was lovingly put away for the future.

What are we to take away from this narrative of the Mishkan?

Wherever a Jew is, no matter where we live, where we travel to, or how far from Eretz Yisrael we are, the Mishkan travels with us.

So, where is this Mishkan in our golus?

The Mishkan in golus is the Shechinah, and it covers every Jew in every land. It will travel with us until Moshiach comes (may he come soon and in our days!) and brings us all back home to Eretz Yisrael where we will have the Beit Hamikdash, the Mishkan and the Shechinah together again.
