The Crown of Halacha

Exodus: Parshah Vayak’hel-Pekudei | Rabbi Eytan Yehusah Dzikowski

Did you know…?

Ch.39, vs.33

Who erected the Mishkan, once it was completed?

וַיָּבִ֤יאוּ אֶת־הַמִּשְׁכָּן֙ אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֔ה אֶת־הָאֹ֖הֶל וְאֶת־כָּל־כֵּלָ֑יו קְרָסָ֣יו קְרָשָׁ֔יו בריחו [בְּרִיחָ֖יו] וְעַמֻּדָ֥יו וַאֲדָנָֽיו׃

Then they brought the Tabernacle to Moses, with the Tent and all its furnishings: its clasps, its planks, its bars, its posts, and its sockets;

They were unable to erect the Mishkan upon its completion.

Hashem left it for Moshe (who hadn’t taken part in its construction) to erect it. Hashem told him to “involve” himself with putting it up and He will make it appear as if Moshe is erecting it. And that’s what happened.

But in truth, it miraculously rose up and stood up on its own.

(Rashi, Tanchuma 11)
