Parshat Terumah, Exodus 25:1–27:19

Last week, I was honored to be one of the representatives from Arizona at the 66th National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. As I mingled with political and religious leaders from all 50 states and 140 countries, I kept thinking of Martin Buber, who said, “All real life is meeting.” Events like the National Prayer Breakfast are so important when they allow us to set aside our particular views, come together to build meaningful relationships and celebrate diversity of religious expression. Established in 1953, the National Prayer Breakfast unites individuals of different nationalities, religions, and political perspectives through the power of prayer.
