Rabbi's Weekly Message

February 26, 2021
14 Adar 5781
PURIM
Parashat Tetzaveh
Exodus 27:20 - 30:10

Clothes make the man…or at least the office
Dress for success
Make a good first impression
Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak
Wear clothes that matter

Dear Friends,

This week we are surrounded by powerful descriptive imagery, particularly the garments people wear. This imagery goes beyond the Torah portion Tetzaveh, where we have detailed descriptions of the type and color of fabric used to make the priestly garments. It is also found in Megillat Esther, where in particular Mordechai’s clothing throughout assigns different degrees of status on him. The imagery is laid out for us in the Torah portion and the Biblical story in a way that is not a common occurrence in the way our Biblical story is told. This week we are surrounded by color, opulence, and splendor. Our senses are being engaged in two contrasting settings: the garments and the accessories of the priests, high priest, and the court of Persia.

Why Does Knowing Our Story Matter?

We discuss the power of history and telling the tale:

  • Why complain? The story of the Israelites crossing the Sea of Reeds
  • How we relate to the complaints of the former slaves
  • Remembering vs. telling the story
