We don’t do 39 mlachot based on mishkan building yet we do mlacha in the mishkan?

Iirc rabbi rimon answers the question by saying that the building of the mishkan is really a preparation for the schina to dwell there and this preparation did not “outweigh” Shabbos. However, once the schina was there, its presence (and our service of it) outweighs Shabbat..

My own answer is that just as in math it’s not so simple to compare two infinities, so too it’s not simple to compare holiness in time and holiness in place. Iirc the rav is quoted m that a Jew has to realize that within the Torah there are many values, and in one situation one value will have a priority over another but in another situation that same prioritization will be reversed. Perhaps, the study of these two holinesses interaction (time and place) would give us a deeper insight into the “mind” of HKBH.

Is anyone training chat GPT-4 on a sh”ut database?
