FRANKINCENSEFREEDMEN, SYNAGOGUE OF THE
 
FREE WILL OFFERING

A gift given at the impulse of the giver (Exodus 35:21-29; Exodus 36:3-7; Leviticus 7:16). The distinctive mark of the free will offering was the “stirred hearts” and “willing spirits” of the givers. The tabernacle was constructed using materials given as free will offerings (Exodus 35:29). The people's desire to give was so great that Moses was compelled to ask that no more gifts be given (Exodus 36:3-7). Free will offerings were traditionally given at Pentecost (Deuteronomy 16:10). See Sacrifice and Offerings.
