When we create the Ark


"Abba Chanan said, citing Rabbi Elazar: One text says, 'And you [Moshe] shall make the Ark of wood,' and another says, 'And they [the nation] shall make the Ark of shittim wood.' How is this so?

"The latter [credit for the community] is when we do as Gd wants, the former [credit just for Moshe] is when we are not doing as Gd wants."

(Talmud, Yoma 3b)

Have a great day,
