Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Where else later in history do we find use for some of the Ark’s wood?
וְזֶ֕ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר תַּֽעֲשֶׂ֖ה אֹתָ֑הּ שְׁלֹ֧שׁ מֵא֣וֹת אַמָּ֗ה אֹ֚רֶךְ הַתֵּבָ֔ה חֲמִשִּׁ֤ים אַמָּה֙ רָחְבָּ֔הּ וּשְׁלֹשִׁ֥ים אַמָּ֖ה קוֹמָתָֽהּ׃
This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.
The 50 amot wooden pole that was intended for hanging Mordechai in the Purim story was also taken from Noach’s ark. That pole was found in the home of Haman’s son, Parshandat.
(Midrash Esther, Yalkut Parsha Beshalach)
