Many commentators wrestle with the connection between the command to build the Tabernacle (Mishkan) and the preceding Sin of the Golden Calf. In his essay on Parashat Teruma, Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo explains the nature of the Sin of the Golden Calf, which leads us to understand the Mishkan and its place in Judaism. This, in turn, gives us a fresh understanding on prayer and man’s place as he approaches God in prayer.

**Look out for Rabbi Cardozo’s new book on Shemot - Exodus, another volume in the "Cardozo on the Parashah" series, which includes more essays on the weekly Torah portion.**
