How to Build a Mishkan: Creating Sacred Community Torah expends several chapters and hundreds of verses on the detailed minutiae of how to build the mishkan, the portable desert sanctuary.  Is there anything to learn from this massive construction project? During Friday night services and a Shabbat afternoon study session we will explore what these texts can still teach us thousands of years later.  What does it mean, in our fractured world, to build sacred space, in our communities and in our hearts?
