Parashat Terumah, and Home, Sweet Tabernacle?

     This week’s Torah portion is Parashat Terumah / פָּרָשַׁת תְּרוּמָה

       This is the 19th  annual  cycle parashah, and the 7th in the book of Sh’mot/Exodus:

Torah Portion: Exodus 25:1-27:19

      This week, everyone will hear about the “Mishkan” aka the Tabernacle.  But literally, miShoKhan (from the root of the word Shochen, or dwells), means “The Thing in which To Dwell” otherwise known as a house.  Ok, or just a home, or a shelter. 

    A place to live.

     So, if the Creator of the Universe needs a place to live, how much more, the rest of us, who need to eat, sleep, and breathe fresh air? 

Parashat Mishpatim was last week…

    1. *sigh*

      I believe they call it “profit motive” or “preventing deflation” or “worry about a glut on the market” via too many goods causing price deflation.

      When prices go down, it seems, businesses lose money and then tend to lay off workers, causing spending to go down, spiraling into an economic contraction.

      Perhaps someone who’s reading in macro economics is more recent could expand on this…
