Double-Parsha Vayakhel-P'kudei, 5722/2012

Due to the vagaries of the Jewish calendar, we're reading both Parshat Vayakhel and Parshat Pekudei this coming Shabbat.

Alternate-spelling fun:
  • Vayakhel, Wayyaqhel, VaYakhel, Va-Yakhel, Vayak’hel, Vayak’heil, or Vayaqhel (וַיַּקְהֵל
  • Pekudei, Pekude, Pekudey, P’kude, or P’qude (פְקוּדֵי
My thoughts:
  • This is a rerun--much of what's in these two parshiot already appeared in parshiot from recent weeks.
  • Whatever happened to Yitro's/Jethro's suggestion that Moshe/Moses delegate labor? Why did HaShem command Moshe himself to do everything to set up the Ohel Moed? See for yourself--every single command in Exodus, chapter 40, verses 1-15 is in the masculine singular in the Hebrew. I thought the Superman role was restricted to HaShem. :)
