Parshat Vayakhel-Pekudei

Vayakhel Torah Portion: Exodus 35:1–Exodus 40:38

God commands the Jews not to build the Sanctuary on Shabbat. The Jews gather gifts to donate to the Tabernacle. The Mishkan is complete! Moses anoints it, and Aaron and his sons are appointed priests. God’s cloud appears over the Mishkan, and God finally dwells within it.
