1. Aharon and his sons, the Kohanim (priests) were distinguished by special clothes. Many people wear uniforms in their jobs. While a uniform offers a mark of distinction, it also sets the individual apart. Do uniforms separate between different levels of society? Do people wearing special clothes feel superior to those who are not wearing them? Is it possible to bridge the gaps within society without removing the special place each individual has?

  2. The purpose of the Mishkan (Tabernacle) was to enable the presence of God to dwell amongst the people. Is it sufficient that there be a place set aside for God's presence to be felt, or do people need to act in certain ways so as to make God want to have His presence amongst them? Today we have no Mishkan. What might we be able to do to enable God's presence to dwell among us even without a fixed place?
