Parshas Terumah

Make Way!

"Will whoever left two shopping carts in aisle three, please come and move them. No one can get through."

"In the rings of the ark shall be poles: they shall not be removed." (Shemos 25:15) The Chizkuni says that the ark was in the "Holy of Holies", which was entered by the Kohain Godol (High Priest) once a year. Therefore the poles sticking out of the side wasn't a public nuisance. However, the poles on the brass alter were where many people walked by, so the Torah had the poles removed after they were brought into the Mishkan.

Too many ladies with strollers walk on the street because cars are parked on the sidewalk.

Have a great Shabbos!!
