Exodus 35:1 - 38:20
II Kings 12:1 - 12:17 | Shabbat Shekalim
In this Torah portion, God commands the Israelites not to do any work in the sanctuary on Shabbat. The Israelites gather gifts for God, gathering so many that they are restrained from searching for more. Moses says that Ohaliab and Bezalel, who are filled with the spirit of God, should take the gifts of the Israelites and build God’s Sanctuary.
