ed against urban decay,
disease, homelessness and
hunger; when the need for
the war against drugs is pro-
claimed; when programs for
education and research are
proposed, then every penny is
scrutinized from a miser's
perspective. The cost becomes
the dominant consideration,
and budgetary concerns are
paramount._
Moses was correct in draw-
ing up a detailed inventory of
the Mishkan. It was not mere-
ly a question of stilling the
shrill complaints of con-
genital fault-finders. The
stock-taking has a far deeper
significance; it was a lesson in
value. Moses made it clear to
the children of Israel that
whatever the sum of their
material possessions, their
real assets, their enduring
resources, were primarily
spiritual.
We of the modern age need
to absorb the full meaning of
this unchanging truth. The
strength of our country rests
on its democratic values.
America is measured not on-
ly by its gross national pro-
duct but by its spiritual foun-
dations. The values of our na-
tion are justice, compas-
sirn,hope and freedom. In-
sofar as these ideals are
translated into public policy
and embodied in institutions,
we have fulfilled the
American dream for our peo-
ple. It is this vision Moses set
forth not only to his genera-
tion, but, through the cen-
turies, to our as well.

is right, good and worthy. A
venerable Talmudic sage was
asked by his disciples, "To
what do you attribute your
long life?" The key word in
the answer is "never." "I
never went back on a pro-
mise; I never was angry in my
house; I never honored myself
through the disgrace of
another; no one ever preced-
ed me to enter the House of
Study'
Another interpretation may
be offered about this reckon-
ing of Moses. The sages refer
to a widespread demand on
the part of the Hebrew people
to be given detailed- informa-
tion, a financial report on the
construction of the national
shrine. In the words of the
Midrash: "Moses said, I know
that many Israelites are mur-
muring against me; hence, I
shall give them a clear
reckoning of the work of the
Tabernacle."
It is noteworthy that when
the children of Israel ordered
the making of the golden calf,
they did not ask Aaron for an
account of the precious metal
employed. How characteris-
tically human! We have, com-
- paritively, but little concern
over the cost of evil things. We
almost take for granted the
high price of the negative,
destructive factors of life. Who
can calculate the vast sums
spent for drug abuse, alcohol
consumption, gambling, por-
nography and other forms of
illicit, unworty,illegal and ad-
dictive pursuits. But when
