This week's parsha reads like 'Architecture Today' magazine, with vivid descriptions of the building of the Mishkan. Using all the latest biodegradeable and environmentally friendly materials, such as animal skins (organic, free range) and goat hair (cruelty free shearing), this building was a masterwork of design such that even the Judge from Up Above was happy to relocate, saying "I shall dwell amidst them".
