In this week’s parsha, we celebrate the beauty and mystery of the sanctuary. The gifts we make help create a space for the presence of Hashem to dwell among us. From the pure gold of the menorah to the cherubim and colorful fabrics, we are inspired to give from our hearts. The mishkan is made complete with repurposed jewelry from the Egyptians. In this way, the gold, silver and gemstones serve as a renewal of the present with a reminder from the past. To kick off our Shabbat menu this week, we take a simple ring and transform it into something new – like the Best Ever Onion Rings.
