Parashat Ki Tissa (When you take census)
Separations occur. This is not a secret. From the first day of creation, G-d made a clear distinction between light and darkness.
Moses separates for forty days from his people and when he returns, they are not the same people.
A Golden calf was built and worshipped, a huge symptom of immaturity.
This is inadmissible and Moses breaks the tablets.
Separations occur. Couples, parents and kids, teachers and students, departures of loved ones from life.
We need to learn to separate and adjust to being apart. That is the only way we won't break what we treasure the most.
