פרוכת PAROKET Ex. 26:31

Postby Isaac Fried » Sat Mar 12, 2016 9:05 pm

We read there
וְעָשִׂיתָ פָרֹכֶת תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר
where פָרֹכֶת is translated as curtain, vail, screen.
It is from the root פרך PRK, a variant of the roots
ברג, ברח, ברך, ברק
פרח, פרך, פרק
collapsible, foldable, pliable, removable, separable, detachable.
