This Old Tabernacle...

Now it's time to build,
Moses is reminding them.
Let's start with Shabbat.

We all must bring gifts
Gifts of gold, silver, copper
yarns, linen and goats

Plus some pretty stones
should all be put together
by all skilled people.

Everyone brought gifts
some were even made by hand
by the wise women.

Mo called Bezalel
and Oholiab also
to be the artists

Everyone brought gifts
and then they brought too many!
Mo said, "that's enough!"

Bezalel worked hard
Made the ark, cover, table,
menorah, laver,

the incense altar,
and altar for sacrifice.
Then he took a rest!

Shabbat Shalom!

See more haiku friday here.

P.S. See this funny video about this week's parasha. Will they do one for each parasha? please?
