The Crown of Halacha

Exodus: Parshah Terumah | Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski

Did you know…?

Ch.25, vs. 23

How satisfying was the “show-bread”?

וְעָשִׂ֥יתָ שֻׁלְחָ֖ן עֲצֵ֣י שִׁטִּ֑ים אַמָּתַ֤יִם אָרְכּוֹ֙ וְאַמָּ֣ה רָחְבּ֔וֹ וְאַמָּ֥ה וָחֵ֖צִי קֹמָתֽוֹ׃

You shall make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.

A Kohen who would eat even a minuscule amount of the previous week’s show-bread would be completely satisfied.

(Yoma 39a)
