Parshas Ki Tisa: A Home For God Built By All People
In what order did the following events occur? The commandment to build the Mishkan, the donation of the materials, the sin of the golden calf, the construction of the Beis Hamikdash. While the Torah does tell this story in a particular order the chronology of the story is a matter of much dispute. But ultimately the question is, does it really matter? Based on a sicha from the Lubavitcher Rebbe of blessed memory, Rav Burg teaches how the Mishkan was not only built by the Tzaddikim and the Baalei Teshuva but even by those that are still struggling. Indeed the Mishkan is a home for God built by all people.
