Who “Wood” Have Thought?!
Bnei Yisrael were busy gathering plenty of wood which was used for the construction of the Mishkan. But, where in the barren desert did they find wood?
Many, many years ago, when Yaakov first went down to Egypt, he knew through Ruach HaKodesh (Divine Inspiration) that his descendants would someday build a Mishkan in the desert. So he planted acacia trees and instructed his sons to bring the wood from these trees with them when they would eventually leave Egypt.
Bnei Yisrael carried the wood from those trees out of Egypt and into the desert, and it was absolutely perfect for building the Mishkan.
