structure was overladen with
gold. Second, the tabernacle
contained an ark, designated
as kosesh ha kadashim, holy
of holies, in which rested the
divine tablets. Indeed the en-
tire structure was designed so
that its focus was the ark that
contained the tablets of the
law. Third, all the construc-
tion, the appointments and
materials were to come as a
free-will offering gladly given
according to the desire of
every person's heart. No gifts
were to be yielded resentful-
ly or brought under pressure.
The larger implications of
the text are revealed in this
three-fold description of the
artistry of religion. First, the
material of religious life is to
be drawn from the best. We
should bring to Judaism the
most valued of our resources,
capacities, energies and
talents. No remnants or shod-
dy stuff should clutter up our
lives in the sphere of religion.
I make this sad observation
that all too often we reserve
for religious life what is left
over of our energy, time and
enthusiasm. Because the
secular world crowds us so
terribly, religion often oc-
cupies a low place in the scale
of our priorities.
I cite as an example the
Sabbath itself, which is the
end of a busy and frenetic
week for most of us. We are
tired, having endured six days
of coping with the duties and
demands of a crowded
schedule, of meeting all our
various commitments —

ews have been artists,
but the artistry of the
Jewish people has not
been in the field of the visual
or the plastic arts, but rather
in the domain of religion.
This truth finds expression in

today's sidra, which describes
the construction of the
mishkan, sanctuary, that was
the portable shrine of the
Hebrew people as they moved
from place to place in the
wilderness of Sinai. These
chapters offer us insight into
the Jewish concept of the ar-
tistry of religion.
We find three aspects to the
building of the sanctuary
which, when transposed on a
larger canvas, enable us to
understand the way a
spiritual life can be created.
First, the mishkan was to
be built of the finest
materials available. Silver
and gold were used; blue and
purple wool and fine fabrics
were provided; and the entire
