Purim Victory Celebrated in Shushan (356 BCE)

The battles fought between the Jews and their enemies, which took place on Adar 13 throughout the Persian empire continued for two days -- Adar 13 and 14 -- in the capital city of Shushan, where there were a greater number of Jew haters. Thus the victory celebrations in Shushan were held on the 15th of Adar, and the observance of the festival of Purim was instituted for that day in Shushan and all walled cities.

#ShabbatShalom - Welcome to Tetzaveh (You Shall Command), this week’s Parasha (Torah Portion). Please read with us these portions of God’s word that will be heard in synagogues around the world during this week’s Shabbat (Saturday) service.  We know you will be blessed!

In last week’s Parsha Terumah, God instructed Moses and the Israelites to construct a Tabernacle (Mishkan) in the wilderness. This week, God commands them to bring pure olive oil for the lamp, and to create holy garments for the priests (cohanim). In this Parasha, sacred garments are to be made for the priests so they can serve God. One of them is the breastplate of judgment (Choshen Hamishpat). The breastplate is associated with the Urim and Thummim, and they are used for divining the will of the Lord. The priestly breastplate was made of embroidered linen sized and shaped into a square cubit.  It contained four rows, each with three precious gems embedded within the plate and surrounded with gold.

Simchat Torah Beit Midrash - Joy of God’s Teaching and Instruction

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.  2 Timothy 3:16

What Does It Mean to Choose Life? Every decision you make can be made in a way that you are “choosing life.”
The Torah is God’s constitution; it is His teaching and instruction; it is eternal and it is life.
His Spirit is pure Light, abundant with untouchable, supreme, sovereign power.
God is the Source of all life.  

פורים Purim
is about the miracle of Jewish survival despite the relentless efforts of their enemies. It’s a story about not giving up even when all appears lost. Esther had an inner beauty and strength which enabled her to act in a way which changed the world. We too can take on the character of Esther, find the hidden strength to take action, and make a difference—even when the situation seems hopeless and all appears lost.

תְּצַוֶּה Tetzaveh  means “you shall command.”
God gives Moses intricate details about the clothing and vestments for the Priests and the High Priest, who was the spiritual leader of the Jewish people. The style, the material, and the colors are all specified.  Their appearance reflected dignity and character.  After all, character is leadership. Clothing has the ability to emphasize your character.  Whether you are a man or woman, your clothing should show self-respect.  When you dress modestly and with dignity, it gives your personality and character the opportunity to shine forth.  Refraining from dressing in a way that draws undue attention to your body allows the attention to be drawn to your character instead.  Let your appearance reflect dignity and character.  When character exists, you feel safe and right. So when you get dressed today, think about how you appear—
to God, to yourself, and to others.

Command [Tetzaveh] the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning.

Shabbat Shalom Purim - Parasha Tetzaveh - the Beauty of Holiness !!!

Reading from the Torah scroll using a silver yad (Torah pointer, literally, hand)
Shabbat Shalom
Welcome to Tetzaveh (You Shall Command),
this week’s Parasha (Torah Portion).
Please read with us these portions of God’s word that will be heard in synagogues around the world during this week’s Shabbat (Saturday) service.  We know you will be blessed!
TETZAVEH (You Shall Command)
Exodus 27:20–30:10; Ezekiel 43:10–27; 1 Peter 2:1–25
“Command [Tetzaveh] the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning.”  
(Exodus 27:20)
In last week’s Torah reading, God instructed Moses and the Israelites to construct a Tabernacle (Mishkan) in the wilderness.
This week, God commands them to bring pure olive oil for the lamp, and to create holy garments for the priests (cohanim).

This gold Menorah created by The Temple Institute is similar to the one
used in ancient times in the Holy Temple and will be consecrated for use
in the next Temple.

The Role of Beauty and Splendor in Serving God
“These are the garments they are to make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a woven tunic, a turban and a sash.  They are to make these sacred garments for your brother Aaron and his sons, so they may serve Me as priests.”  (Exodus 28:4)
In this Parasha, sacred garments are to be made for the priests so they can serve God.
One of them is the breastplate of judgment (Choshen Hamishpat).
The breastplate is associated with the Urim and Thummim, and they are used for divining the will of the Lord.
The priestly breastplate was made of embroidered linen sized and shaped into a square cubit.  It contained four rows, each with three precious gems embedded within the plate and surrounded with gold.  
Each jewel in the priest’s breastplate represented one of the twelve tribes of Israel, whose names were engraved upon the stones.  God would use the individual letters of these names to spell out His judgments for Israel when the Urim was used to consult Him.
"He is to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by inquiring of the Urim before the LORD.  At his command he and the entire community of the Israelites will go out, and at his command they will come in."  (Numbers 27:21)

garments.  (photo by Andreas Franz Borchert)
In the Brit Chadashah (New Testament), John describes his vision of the New Jerusalem, in which the foundation stones of the city walls are adorned with 12 precious gems.  Some, if not all, of these gems are also in the breastplate.
Some of the stones’ true identities may have been lost, since the Hebrew and Greek cultures shared no definitive gem names, especially during the 1,000 years between the writing of 1 Samuel and
the Book of Revelation:
“The foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone.  The first foundation stone was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.”  (Revelation 21:19–20)
There are over 30 different opinions concerning the identification of the breastplate stones in rabbinical literature and tradition.  (Temple Institute)

Cutting malachite, which has been mined and smelted in Israel's Timna
Valley for over 3,000 years.
What we see in the description of the Breastplate and New Jerusalem is that God considers beauty to be glorifying as we serve Him on earth and in Heaven, where we will one day be surrounded by the brilliant splendor of streets paved with gold and divinely cut jewels embedded in foundations.
God also considers certain colors and material important and glorifying in service to Him.
“You shall make holy garments for Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty."  (Exodus 28:2)
The ephod, or garment underneath the breastplate, was made out of fine linen and woven out of gold, blue, purple and scarlet threads.  Although a priestly garment, it seems that King David wore it as well when he brought back the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem.
“Now David was clothed with a robe of fine linen with all the Levites who were carrying the ark, and the singers and Chenaniah the leader of the singing with the singers.  David also wore an ephod of linen.” 
(1 Chronicles 15:27; see also 2 Samuel 6:14)

Serving God in the Beauty of Holiness  
Everything God creates in His physical world helps us understand His spiritual world.  The use of physical gems on the breastplate of the Kohen Gadol is no different. 
Since these stones represent the 12 tribes, and the breastplate is connected with discovering the will of God, the stones represent how precious Israel is to the Lord and His desire to lead them into His will.
The precious stones embedded in the foundations of the New Jerusalem also represent the 12 tribes.  From this, we can understand the continued importance of Israel in the Messianic Age.
All Believers in Yeshua play a significant role, as well.  Scripture says that we are a holy priesthood and living stones, a spiritual house through Yeshua the Messiah:
“And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Messiah Yeshua."  (1 Peter 2:4–5)
Like a precious jewel, precisely cut, shaped and polished by a master lapidary, we each have the ability to uniquely reflect the beauty and glory of God's Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) as we serve Him.
When we fulfill that destiny, we take our place in a spiritual house, whose cornerstone—the One who holds it all together—is, of course, Yeshua HaMashiach.
“Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.”  (1 Peter 2:6)
