Baltimore, MD - Feb. 24, 2019 - After the sin of the golden calf, the Jewish nation lost the crowns which they had received by Har Sinai. Throughout the Parsha, the topic of Shabbos is spoken about near the topic of the building of the Mishkan, the place for Hashem to reside. Shabbos is the beginning of the restoration of that connection which was lost by the sin. What is it about Shabbos that brings those crowns back? When keeping Shabbos there is an element of trust and giving ourselves over to Hashem through detaching from the physical world. The greatest ornament of a jew is the capacity to live beyond the physical world and live like heavenly angels. By showing that, the crowns can be restored and the presence of Hashem can live in our midst once again.
