Why Do The Details Matter?

The Significance Of The Tabernacle's Colors

There are some commandments that are easy to connect to. Nobody wonders why it's prohibited to murder or steal. People connect with the spiritual and historical significance of the festivals. And the command to build a Mishkan, a home for God in the midst of the Israelite camp, could be one – if it weren't for those inscrutable details.

Ram skins. Acacia wood. Bells and pomegranates. And cubits – oh, the cubits. So many of us can't connect to these details, because they don't seem to mean anything. They don't have any obvious spiritual significance. If we dig a little deeper, though, maybe we could find some. Join Daniel Loewenstein as he digs into the meaning of one of the features of the Mishkan: the colors of the walls.

But it doesn't end there; the Bible also seems to indicate that each color on its own has a unique meaning. For a deeper discussion, read Daniel's blog: A Deeper Dive Into The Symbolism Of The Tabernacle's Colors
