The Crown of Halacha

Exodus: Parshah Terumah | Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski

Did you know…?
Ch.25, vs. 4
Where does the thchelet come from?

וּתְכֵ֧לֶת וְאַרְגָּמָ֛ן וְתוֹלַ֥עַת שָׁנִ֖י וְשֵׁ֥שׁ וְעִזִּֽים׃

Turquoise, purple, and crimson yarns, fine linen, goats’ hair.

Techellet/Turquoise, was obtained from the secretion of a rare aquatic animal called a Chilazon which emerges out of water once every 70 years.

Its dye has the color of the sea, the sky, and was a reminder of the Throne of Glory.

(Menachot 44a)
