Understanding the Famous Rashi in Pekudei

Here is something from my private notes in Hebrew on the Parsha:

תחילת פרשת אלה פקודי, שמות פרק ל”ח פסוק כ”א, ,אלה פקודי המשכן משכן העדת אשר פקד כו'”. וקשה, מדוע פירט וכתב תיבת “משכן” ב’ פעמים. ויש על זה ישובים בדרך הפשט ברמב”ן וחזקוני ועוד.

והנה כתב רש”י שם, המשכן משכן, שני פעמים רמז למקדש שנתמשכן בשני חורבנין על עונותיהן של ישראל, עכ”ל. ומקורו מדרש רבה פרשה נ”א פסקה ג’, וז”ל, מהו משכן שני פעמים א”ר שמואל בר מרתא שנתמשכן שני פעמים על ידיהם. זהו שאנשי כנסת הגדולה אומרים חבול חבלנו לך ולא שמרנו את המצות ואת החוקים ואת המשפטים מהו חבול חבלנו לך הוי שנתמשכן ב’ פעמים ואין חבול אלא משכון שנאמר (דברים כד) לא יחבול רחים ורכב לכך כתיב אלה פקודי המשכן משכן העדות ב’ פעמים, עכ”ל.

וז”ל השפתי חכמים,  וא”ת הא לא מיותר לדרשא אלא חד משכן וחד איצטריך לגופיה. וי”ל מדשני הקרא בלשונו וכתב המשכן משכן ולא כתיב תרווייהו בה”א או בלא ה”א ודאי הה”א קאי על המשכן המיוחד דהיינו בית עולמים שהוא בית המקדש א”כ קשה למה מכנה אותו הכתוב בלשון משכן אלא רמז וכו’. עכ”ל. וזה דוחק.

ונראה לי שיש לפרש כונת רש”י דסגי למכתב “משכן” פעם אחת ואם כן, על כרחך חד מינייהו ייתורא. ודרשי ליה כאותיותיו כרוב “אל תקרי” שבש”ס (ועיין רש”ש כתובות ל”ח ב’). ומה שכתב “בשני חורבנין” ספור דברים בעלמא בגופא דעובדא היכי הוה, אבל אין לומר דקמא קאי ואייתי למקדש ראשון ובתרא להשני. ואין צריך לדברי השפתי חכמים באות ה”א וכולי.

ויש כעין זה ברש”י במקום אחר, על במדבר כ”ד סוף ה’. וז”ל, משכנתיך, אף כשהן חרבין לפי שהן משכון עליהן וחרבנן כפרה על הנפשות שנאמר כלה ה’ את חמתו. ובמה כלה ויצת אש בציון, עכ”ל. וגם שם אינו ענין למנין, רק קושטא קאמר, שחרב המקדש אף בשניה.

Where is the rest?

EIGERI was just learning Bava Metzia 26b (right above the Mishna), and noticed that lovely “steering wheel” sign used to indicate the presence of a comment by Rabbi Akiva Eiger. When I checked the margins, however, there was no such comment to be found. What is going on?

Look for yourself: Continue reading
