Ki Tisa 2022

Feb 19, 2022    Brittney Scott

Ki Tisa/”When You Take”, Exodus 30:11-34:35, is the 3rd parshah of 5 that deals with the building of the Tabernacle.  Yet of the 5, this one seems to be the most unique in regards to veering from the pattern!  It begins with instructions regarding a census of Israel (the first mention of this concept, the numbering of the people) prior to continuing on with descriptions of the vessels of the Tabernacle.  It is also within this parshah that Mosheh descends from the mountain to be confronted with the debacle of the molten calf and Israel’s rebellion!  Remember, that this becomes a blueprint for the re-gathering of Israel once again from exile in order to build a tabernacle made from the living stones!  Which infers then as well, there will once again be an opportunity for the compromising of that tabernacle!
