The Parsha for this week is about T’rumah, which means gift in Hebrew language. The parsha covers Exodus 25:1-27:19. The word gift or gifts were mentioned 112 times 104 verses in King James Bible. In New Testament, it was mentioned 61 times in 56 verses. In this topic, we will be dealing with the gift or gifts as mentioned in the Brit Chadasha and it is amazing how the translation was simplified when the original writings mean something else.
And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the L-RD our G-d, as he hath commanded us.

Purim means "lots", from the word “pur” is a Jewish holy day that celebrates the deliverance of the Jewish people during the ancient Persian Empire where a plot had been formed to annihilate them. The account has been recorded in the biblical book of Esther (known as Megillat Ester in Hebrew).
The Book of Esther described Haman, a royal adviser to King Ahasuerus (known to be Xerxes I of Persia) planned and attempted to obliterate all the Jews in the empire, but his plans were foiled by Mordecai and his adopted daughter Esther who had risen to become Queen of Persia. The supposed day of extermination became the day of deliverance and was observed with feasting and rejoicing.
