Ki tissa Text

Parashat Ki Tissa (When you take the census)

After the golden calf, Moses comes back from Mount Sinai (to bring the second set of tablets) and he walks around the camp with his face veiled.
He survives on the mountain for over a month without food or water.  The people see him talk with G-d, but something is different. Now he has a veil that covers his face. Why?

Maybe the people needed to understand that when you break a relationship and you try to start over, there will be something that clouds the relationship and it is not going to be the same.  This teaches us that if you want to prevent the veils, you have to take care of your relationships.

In memory of my beloved mother and teacher Miriam Rachel bat Israel Itzchak Z"L
