The Crown of Halacha

Exodus: Parshah Vayak’hel-Pekudeim | Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski

Did you know…?
Ch.38, vs.8
How big was the Kiyor?

וַיַּ֗עַשׂ אֵ֚ת הַכִּיּ֣וֹר נְחֹ֔שֶׁת וְאֵ֖ת כַּנּ֣וֹ נְחֹ֑שֶׁת בְּמַרְאֹת֙ הַצֹּ֣בְאֹ֔ת אֲשֶׁ֣ר צָֽבְא֔וּ פֶּ֖תַח אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד׃

He made the laver of copper and its stand of copper, from the mirrors of the women who performed tasks at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.

The Kiyor was made exclusively out of the women’s copper mirrors.

There is no size given for the dimensions of the Kiyor.

This is because every single mirror was to be accepted for its construction regardless of how big the kiyor would be from the many mirrors

(Ibn Ezra, Rashi)
