Parsha Summary: Pikudei


Rabbi Stewart Weiss

Our Parsha concludes Sefer Shmot. After finishing all the different objects & garments used in the Mishkan, Moshe gives a complete accounting of all the contributions, clothing & vessels. He inspects the handiwork & then Moshe blesses the people, "May the Shechina should rest on all works of their hands."

Hashem tells Moshe to set up the Mishkan on Rosh Chodesh Nissan. When the Mishkan is finally complete with everything in its place, a cloud descends on it, indicating G-d's glory rested there. When the cloud moved away from the Mishkan, Bnei Yisrael would follow it. At night the cloud was replaced by a pillar of fire.
