Summary of Today's Chumash
In the fifth aliyah Betzalel makes the ephod (an apron for the Kohain) out of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet yarn, and fine linen. He also makes the breastplate of judgment (choshen mishpat) of the same materials and twelve precious stones set in gold. Each stone corresponds to one of the twelve tribes. Betzalel binds the breastplate to the ephod.
