Pekudei: Carry That Weight
The Torah portion this week takes us to the end of the book of Exodus and, wow, it’s been a journey (pun intended). The Israelites started off as a band of lost folks just setting out into the wilderness, led by a guy they had basically never seen before and the God he was repping. Now, well, they’re still lost in the wilderness, led by the same guy. But now they’re a free people and that’s a heckuva difference.
