Exodus 35:1-38:20

After descending from Mt. Sinai with the second set of stone tablets, Moses gathers the people together so that the building of the Tabernacle can begin.  First he reminds them of the importance of observing Shabbat, specifically the prohibition against kindling of fire.  Moses tells the people that God has chosen Bezalel (from the tribe of Judah) and Oholiab (from the tribe of Dan) to serve as the lead artisans. The people continue to donate beautiful materials until Moses informs them that they have more than they need.
