Devash: Parashat Ki Tissa


Now there's even more Torah to explore!

Open the Parashat Ki Tissa (year 1) magazine to explore: what is the Jewish value in not getting angry? Can I open mail that arrived on Shabbat? And why does everyone have to give the same half shekel to the mishkan?

Open the Parashat Ki Tissa (year 2) magazine to explore: What were the crowns that we got at Mount Sinai? What is the half shekel that we do today? And how could the Israelites have created an idol so soon after receiving the Torah!?

Open the Parashat Ki Tissa (year 3) magazine to explore: Was Aharon responsible for the sin of the golden calf? What was so bad about Ahav and Izevel? And what is it about the Torah that makes us free?
