The Torah, “Exodus” (VaYakhel) 35:20-35:21: The entire community departed from before Moses. Every man whose heart uplifted him came, and everyone whose spirit inspired him to generosity brought the offering of the Lord for the work of the Tent of Meeting, for all its service, and for the holy garments.
We have nothing but the ego! We need to tear something off it and bring it to what we call “the collective pot.” This is of the common vessel (Kli), which we call the Temple or the Tabernacle. These are not corporeal figures but what we create between us. We create the center of the group where we put all of our yearnings, efforts, and desires that are above the ego. Everything that we collect together is the willingness of our heart, which we should do.
