Parshas Terumah – Paroches – תרומה

Parshas Terumah discusses the different kelim used in the Mishkan. The Paroches was a beautiful curtain that hung between the Kodesh (outer area) and the Kodesh Kedashim (the inner area where the aron was placed).
We made a cake with colorful non-perils and a lion on it to represent the Paroches which was made of many colors with animals like the lion and eagle on it.

Once both cakes are cool flip them out and cut into quarters so you have 4 rectangles, then each rectangle into 3 strips.
