Parashat T’rumah provides precise instructions on how to build the Mishkan and its contents. But those guidelines, like the design for the Temple menorah, have been interpreted in various ways throughout the ages. What does this teach us about the nature of communication?
Just as the Sages varied their interpretations on the instructions in T’rumah for creating the menorah, so we too can interpret messages in different ways. We should be careful how this applies when we use text messaging and email.
