Parshat Tetzaveh, 5773/2013 thoughts

Basics here.

Sigh--yet another vocabulary parsha.

And I still don't know exactly what an ephod is, but that makes an ephod analogous to carbon paper--just as the term "ephod" didn't have to be explained to the ancients, so, too, the term "carbon paper" didn't have to be explained to folks of my generation.  Our descendants will have to do an internet search (or the future functional equivalent thereof) to figure out what carbon paper was.

Conservadox points out that our ancients liked their Mishkan well-lit.
