Parsha Blog: Pesach

by Rabbi Shawn SimonHazani, Coordinator/Instructor Mar 30, 2015 Mitzpeh BaGalil at Hannaton, Lookstein Virtual Jewish Academy
RELATED TOPICS: Jewish Studies

We are told in the Torah in several locations that we must eat unleavened bread for 7 days, put all leaven out of our homes to the extent that it is not seen anywhere near us for the full week of the festival of Pesach. We are also told in these same passages that we are to bake and eat matzah on the holiday. This begs the question of what is leaven/chametz that we must be so careful that we not eat it nor have it in our very presence.

Parsha Blog: Ki Tisa

by Merrill Hendin, Head of School Mar 04, 2015 Portland Jewish Academy, Portland, Oregon
RELATED TOPICS: Jewish Studies

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.
