Summary of Today's Chumash
The fourth aliyah contains instructions for making the boards of the Mishkan with their sockets and rings. The boards are made of cedar wood, and Rashi says that Yakov Avinu (our patriarch) planted cedar trees in Egypt because he knew that in the future G-d would require Yakov's descendants to build a Mishkan in the desert out of cedar.
