Sharing Netanyahu's ice cream burden

The Torah portion from the Book of Exodus this week, Tetzaveh, and the one for last week, Terumah, are pretty dull. Who's interested in the rules for building the Tabernacle and the Holy Ark, and the directions for designing the sacred vessels, sewing the priestly garments, charring the sacrifices and dividing their meat? Give most of it to God and the rest to His servants.
