Our study today takes us to the Song of Songs (or the Song of Solomon), and we study it in the context of this week's parasha which is all about the Tabernacle of God. The Song of Songs is fundamentally a song of divine and holy love between God and His people - His dwelling place in man - typified by the Tabernacle. We study the Song verse by verse seeing the many references of the text to various events in the life of the people of Israel from the very first act of the Tabernacle (giving the people to drink after their sin at the golden calf) to the temple of Solomon and even to Ezekiel's temple.
