Moses is the point in the heart, which manages the construction of the Tabernacle (correction of the desires). Everything was created around this point in the heart and was brought allegorically with the words: “And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses.”
The “point in the heart” that is implanted in us has its root in the Creator. Thanks to that, we begin to adapt all of our egoistic characteristics to it, which are called “gold,” “silver,” “jewelry,” and so forth, to create the vessel of bestowal around it.
The establishment of the Tabernacle (Mishkan) for the Creator was more precious than the creation of the universe. The universe was created simply by a word from the mouth of the Creator, whereas the Tabernacle was created as a result of the effort of the great Tzadikkim (righteous), Moses, Bezalel…and all of the children of Israel. And why is the Tabernacle comparable to heaven and earth?
But what is heaven and earth witnesses on Israel, as it is written: “I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day….” (Deuteronomy 30:19), whereas the Tabernacle testifies about Israel, as it is said: “These are the accounts of the tabernacle, even the tabernacle of the testimony….” (Exodus 38:21). So it is said: “Lord, I love the habitation of Thy house, and the place where Thy glory dwelleth” (Psalms 26:8), and so forth. (Midrash Rabbah, “Exodus,” “Pekudei”).
The Tabernacle was the creation of the man in a person, so his creation is more precious to the Creator than the entire universe.
