Parashat Tetzaveh

פרשת תצוה

ספר שמות

"You shall instruct"


The formation of Israel’s ritual culture takes place with God’s commands regarding the clothing of the priests and the High Priest and with the initiation of Aharon and his sons, so that they can exercise the priestly functions. All this cleansing will make the altar “Holy of Holies”—which will allow God to dwell among the Children of Israel. He announces that he will meet with the people at times determined by Him.
