Summary of Today's Chumash
The fifth aliyah contains instructions for making the "poroches" (the veil), and hanging it between the holy of holies (kodesh hakodoshim) and the holy place. In the holy of holies, inside the veil, the ark with the luchos is placed with the ark cover over it. Outside the veil, the Menorah (the candelabra) is placed toward the south, and the Shulchan (the table) is placed toward the north, opposite each other.
