This week’s parasha, Ki Tisa, is chock full of ‘good stuff’ and lessons to impart. The list is long:
Moses takes a census of the people;
We are given instructions on the building of the Ohel Moed- the Holy Tabernacle;
Moshe receives the tablets with the Ten Commandments on it-twice!
The people build a golden calf while Moshe is on Mt. Sinai;
Shabbat is mentioned once again as a day of pure rest;
There is even a nod to Kashrut in a verse prohibiting cooking a kid’s meat in its mother’s milk.
