Shiur Torah #82 Parashat Pikudei, To LOVE or FEAR God, Mishkan Business Secrets, The 10 Remembrances

Parasha/Torah Portion
Published over 1 year ago

Pekudei, Pekude, Pekudey, P'kude, or P'qude (פְקוּדֵי — Hebrew for "amounts of," the second word, and the first distinctive word, in the parashah) is the 23rd weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading and the 11th and last in the book of Exodus. It constitutes Exodus 38:21–40:38. The parashah is made up of 4,432 Hebrew letters, 1,182 Hebrew words, and 92 verses, and can occupy about 159 lines in a Torah scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah). Jews read it the 22nd or 23rd Sabbath after Simchat Torah, in March. The lunisolar Hebrew calendar contains up to 55 weeks, the exact number varying between 50 in common years and 54 or 55 in leap years. In leap years (for example, 2016, 2019, 2022, 2024, 2025, and 2027), parashah Pekudei is read separately. In common years (for example, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021, 2023, and 2026), parashah Pekudei is combined with the previous parashah, Vayakhel, to help achieve the needed number of weekly readings. The parashah tells of the setting up of the Tabernacle.
