Vayikra

Shalom!   We enter in to the third book of the Torah this week. The first word...Vayikra. It means "And He called". In grammar, the word "and" is a conjunction or a connective word. So the question...what is this first verse connecting to? Obviously, the "and" must be connecting us to the previous book of Shemot/Exodus which ended with the Presence of YHWH filling the Tabernacle.

Shalom! This week the amazing desire of the Elohim of Israel - Shemot/Exodus 25:8 "And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.   In our Torah parashah, the Creator of the Universe expresses His desire to descend from His lofty throne and tabernacle with His chosen people.
