Parshat Truma: Deeds of Dads, Signs for Sons

The Torah talks about the type of acacia-wood boards needed to erect the holy Tabernacle in the desert. They had to be 10 x 1.5 cubits, or about 15 feet long and 2.2 feet wide. Where did Moses find such choice lumber in the desert? What's the significance of these planks? The Midrash's amazing answer is something you'll surely want to share with your family at the Shabbat table, as we'll learn in today's mini-lesson. Enjoy it and have a wonderful Shabbat!
