Parshat Vayak'hel, (Exodus 38:1-38:20)-2/22/2014

The Israel women would use mirrors to pretty themselves so they could seduce men. Moses wouldn't let the mirrors into the tent, but they had washstands that would test the women and prove their innocence (or otherwise). This was, once again, a return to the Garden of Eden. Seduction (temptation) had no place in a holy space.

I thought more about the sabbath ... for me. I worked for 60 years and now it is the sabbath. I got it wrong ... but usually do mix things up a little. But had fun all the time really, except for a short time when I had a real job.
