WEEKLY PARASHA

Parasha Tetzaveh

Exodus 27:20-30:10

This parasha describes in detail the requirements of consecration of Aaron and his sons who served as the first Priests. The Priests, the Kohanim, performed rituals and sacrifices on behalf of the people at the Mishkan, the portable sanctuary used in the forty years of wandering in the desert. They wore elaborately decorated garments, including a breast-piece of gold and precious stones worn by Aaron, the first High Priest. The parasha ends with a description of the altar used for the daily burning of incense.
MetroWest ABLE

Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel is an inclusive congregation, accessible and welcoming to all. If you need accommodations, please call Karen at the Temple office.
