Ten Cubits

  The sanctuary is portable, made for nomads in the desert. The desert is a place of the word, of holiness, of a dwelling made to contain holiness. These people who come from the land of the pyramids and glitter of the pharaohs go into a land of stark nature, to consolidate, to listen to the holy words, to find their own relationship to the holy, and in the starkness of the desert, they discover their own relationship to color and texture. In the building of the Mishkan and its objects, they meditate and pray with devotion, both with their hands and their hearts.

פרשת תרומה: שמות כה:

וַיְדַבֵּר ה‘, אֶלמֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. דַּבֵּר אֶלבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְיִקְחוּ לִי תְּרוּמָהמֵאֵת כָּלאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִדְּבֶנּוּ לִבּוֹ, תִּקְחוּ אֶתתְּרוּמָתִי. וְזֹאת, הַתְּרוּמָה, אֲשֶׁר תִּקְחוּ, מֵאִתָּם:זָהָב וָכֶסֶף, וּנְחֹשֶׁת. וּתְכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ וְעִזִּים. וְעֹרֹת אֵילִם מְאָדָּמִים וְעֹרֹת תְּחָשִׁים, וַעֲצֵי שִׁטִּים. שמות: כה: אה וְעָשׂוּ לִי, מִקְדָּשׁ;וְשָׁכַנְתִּי, בְּתוֹכָם. שמות:כה:ח

And the L-D spoke unto Moses, saying: ‘Speak unto the children of Israel, that they take for Me an offering; of every man whose heart maketh him willing ye shall take My offering And this is the offering which ye shall take of them: gold, and silver, and brass; and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair; and rams’ skins dyed red, and sealskins, and acacia-wood. Exodus: 25:1-5 And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. Exodus: 25:8
