Parashat Tetzaveh: "You shall make a breastplate (choshen) of decision...set in it mounted stones in four rows...the stones shall correspond to the names of the sons of Israel; twelve, corresponding to their names...on the breastplate make braided chains of corded work in pure gold." (Exodus 28: 15-22)
Parashat Tetzaveh details the garments and special ritual objects that Aaron, the High Priest, will wear when he officiates at the altar. One of the themes of Purim (coming up this week), is the concealing and revealing of identities, which we recall by wearing costumes and masks.
Which elements of your uniform(s), or costume(s) create, conceal, or reveal aspects of your identity?
