Daily Aliya for Vayakhel/Pekudei, Shlishi (3rd Aliya)
Aliya Summary: This Aliya describes the construction of the menorah (candelabra) and the Incense Altar. The anointing oil and the incense are also prepared.
One common aspect of both of these items is that they emit their “influence” to all those around them, without prejudice, providing light and a sweet smell to all near them. It’s meant to be a model for our behavior.
