How many Amos remained uncovered on the west?


Rashi: Of the four extra Amos, one Amah covered the pillars on the east side, two hung down in front, 1 and ten Amos hung down on the west side, covering the two Amos 2 that were not covered by the Mishkan, leaving nothing uncovered.

What are the connotations of the term "Achorei ha'Mishkan"?


Rashi: Based on the fact that the entrance of the Mishkan was in the east, the east is always referred to as the front of the Mishkan, the west, as the back, the south, the right side, and the north, the left side. 1
