New Holy Talk Podcast ✡ Shabbat Shalom – Israel365

Man Praying at The Western Wall in Jerusalem
This is what you shall do to them in consecrating them to serve Me as Kohanim: Take a young bull of the herd and two rams without blemish Exodus 29:1 (The Israel Bible™)

וְזֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר־תַּעֲשֶׂה לָהֶם לְקַדֵּשׁ אֹתָם לְכַהֵן לִי לְקַח פַּר אֶחָד בֶּן־בָּקָר וְאֵילִם שְׁנַיִם תְּמִימִם

v’-ZEH ha-da-VAR a-SHER ta-a-SEH la-HEM l’-ka-DAYSH o-TAM l’-kha-HAYN LEE l’-KAKH PAR e-KHAD ben ba-KAR v’-ay-LEEM sh’-NA-yim t’-mee-MIM

This verse appears in this week’s Torah portion which describes the building of the Tabernacle (Mishkan) and starts with the words v’zeh hadavar asher ta’aseh lahem (וזה הדבר אשר תעשה להם), ‘this is what you shall do to them.’ In the context of this verse, the Hebrew word hadavar (הדבר) means ‘the thing.’

However, hadavar can also mean ‘the word.’ According to the Sages, the use of this term in the chapter describing the inauguration ritual of the Mishkan alludes to an important lesson. Hashem is not found exclusively in the Mishkan, nor is the Mishkan service the only way to access Him. Even when there is no longer a Holy Temple and sacrifices are not brought, Hashem is still accessible through words, the words of our prayers.
