1/2 shekel, golden calf and broken luchot.


·        The parsha begins by Hashem commanding Moshe about a few more things that will be needed in the Mishkan: the Kiyor (sink) which will be used to wash the Kohanim's hands and feet, incense, and oil of anointment.

·   In addition, Moshe instructs all of Bnei Yisrael to donate a half a shekel in order to complete the building of the Mishkan.

·   Next, the parasha tells us that Moshe received the Ten Commandments on stone tablets from Hashem and is planning to come down.

·   Bnei Yisrael had miscounted the 40 days and 40 nights that Moshe was supposed to be up with G-d, and when they see that he hasn't returned, they ask Aharon to build them an idol. Aharon tried to buy time and told them to come back the next day with gold

·   The next day, Aharon throws the gold in the fire and the idol is made. Moshe comes down when Bnei Yisrael are singing and dancing around the idol. When he sees this, he smashes the tablets to the ground which break them. Moshe destroyed the idol and commands the tribe of Levi to kill any Jew caught worshipping the idol.

·   The next day, Moshe goes up to Hashem and begs him not to kill all of Am Yisrael. Moshe receives new tablets and Hashem forgives Bnei Yisrael.


Here is a great way for my father and I to learn a little bit of Parsha each week, even though we live far from each other.
( I like the play on words of Abba in the word Shabbat and bat (daughter...) and Imabba meaning "with Abba" and Ima Abba written together!  Thanks Abba and Ima :-)
 This week's parsha talks about machatzit hashekel.  If you look at the word מחצית, the middle letter is tzadi.  The 2 letters surrounding the tzadi are chet and yud- chai.  The 2 letters away from the tzadi are mem and taf- meit (dead).  If you come close to tzidkut or tzedaka- then chai you will live and also feel alive.  If you go further away- meit- it is like you are dead.
In this parsha it says venatnu- and they gave.  This talks about tzedaka.  It is spelled the same both forwards and backwards.  If  you give charity, you are sure to get back a reward.
Bnei Yisrael saw that Moshe was delayed,
They began to worry, they became afraid.
Who will be our leader?  Moshe isn’t here.
They ran to ask Aharon, they all started to fear.

Aharon wasn’t sure what to do with what he was told,
He told the Bnei Yisrael to bring him all the gold.
Aharon did not want to see the Bnei Yisrael fall,
He tried to take his time; he tried to have them stall.

Bnei Yisrael saw the image of a golden calf,
They sang and danced, with joy they all did laugh.
Hashem saw what was happening, he was very mad,
How could they not realize  the goodness that they had?

What did Hashem want to do? What did Moshe plead?
Look it up in your Chumash, go ahead and read.
This is a famous story, do you remember it?
What happened to Moshe with the luchot habrit?

·        This week’s parsha talks about the 39 melachot of Shabbat.  Before Shabbat write down the 39 melachot of Shabbat on pieces of paper.  Write down on another 39 pieces of paper a melacha connected to it.  For example:  We cannot plant flowers= zoreah (planting).  See how many melachot your kids could match.

·   Every person had to give a half a shekel no matter if he was rich or poor.   We learn that we should give tzedaka with happiness.  It does not matter how much you can give, as long as you do it with jow.  Involve your kids this week in giving tzedaka.  Whether it is making sure you give money in the tzedaka box or having the kids collect food for poor people and donate it to a needy charity.  The kids will feel the importance of giving to someone who is in need.

Thought of the week:
Imagine how special and dear the Luchot were. How often do we receive something written and shaped by Hashem? It must have been very difficult for Moshe to break such a priceless gift!

The Sforno points out that when Moshe broke the Luchot. he did not break the Luchot when Hashem informed him about the Egel Hazahav. Moshe only broke the Luchot when he saw the Jews dancing joyously in front of the Egel Hazahav. The Sforno explains that Moshe had planned to go down, convince the Jews to do tshuva and then elevate them back to their spiritual level of Matan Torah. When Moshe saw that the Jews were sinning joyously, he realized that it would not be possible for the Jews to return to their previous spiritual level and they were not worthy to have the Luchot made by Hashem.

The Sforno teaches us the power that joy infuses into a person’s actions and why it is important to be oved Hashem besimcha. By joyously fulfilling the mitzvot, the Jewish people demonstrate that they recognize how lucky they feel to be Hashem’s nation. If a person was singled out by the prime minister or president for a specific task, that person would be proud and happy to have been chosen, even if the task was difficult. So too we should be proud to be Hashem’s chosen people and we should keep this in mind when we perform the mitzvot!


Broken Luchot:
What you will need:
·  Cake pan of the luchos (or a regular 9x13 pan and cut in the shape of luchos)
·   Frosting (optional)
·   Cut the cake in half
Peach Cake:
Eggs, well beaten
1 3/4
Cup Sugar
1 Cup
Cooking Oil
2 Cups
1 Tsp
1 Tsp
2 Cups
Sliced Peaches [can use fresh or canned]
1/2 Cup
Chopped Walnuts
1 Tsp
Baking Soda

Mix thoroughly by hand.
Pour in greased and floured 13" x 9" pan or luchos pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes.

When the cake has cooled you can frost it by whipping a pareve dessert whip.  You can add a drop of black food coloring to give it a grey effect.
If you have chocolate molds of the alef beis, or luchos chocolate molds, you could make those and add it to your cake.
Enjoy!  Have a great Shabbat!

TETZAVEH cake and games


  •    At the beginning of the parsha, Moshe is commanded to take special olive oil to light the lamps in the Menora.
  • Parashat Tetzaveh continues to detail the building of the Mishkan. In this week's parsha we learn about the jobs of the Kohanim, and the special outfits that they wore during the avodah.    
  • A Kohen Hedyot (regular Kohen) has four special garments to wear: the michnasayim (pants), the Ktonet (the tunic), Migba'at (the hat), and the Avnet (the belt). 
  • Aharon (and future Kohanim G'dolim) wear the four garments that regular Kohanim wear, in addition to an extra four garments that they wear as well: The Tzitz, the Ephod (an apron with bells), the Choshen Hamishpat, and the Me'il (the jacket).  
  • Hashem details the korbanot (sacrifices) that will be sacrificed during the Chanukat Hamishkan. Afterwards, he details the Korban Tamid that will be offered every day.  
  • We learn about the Mizbeach hazahav, which is used to burn incense.


Here is a great way for my father and I to learn a little bit of Parsha each week, even though we live far from each other.
( I like the play on words of Abba in the word Shabbat and bat (daughter...) and Imabba meaning "with Abba" and Ima Abba written together!  Thanks Abba and Ima :-)
 The Parsha starts out by saying: "ואתה תצוה"  and you should command.  First, you should- you should take care of yourself and do what you have to do and only then can you tell others what to do.
   Moshe Rabbeinu's name is not mentioned in this week's Parsha. Moshe Rabeinu says "מחיני נא מספריך שכתבת"  
"erase me please from the book that You wrote".  We learn from here that a person should always be careful with the words that come out of his mouth.
The Shambat adds that when Hashem requested דבר נא באזני '' העם"  requesting that  the Bnei Yisrael  take the gold and silver, Moshe begged Hashem to take out the "נא", from the sefer.  Moshe realized that the gold and silver that Hashem asked to please take would end up being the gold used for the Golden calf.
 "ויקחו אליך שמן זית"  The Bnei Yisrael are compared to olive oil. When you take any liquids and mix them together, you cannot identify which one is which.  Oil though, always rises to the top.  The same is with the Bnei Yisrael. They separate themselves from the goyim and rise to the top. Just like one squeezes out the olives with difficulty to get olive oil, so to the goyim try to squeeze the Bnei Yisrael.

The Kutonet was a woven white garment,
It was of a checkered design,
It was long from the shoulder to the ground, 
The material was very fine.

The Avnait was a colored belt,
Wrapped around the kohein’s waist,
The Michnasayim were white linen shorts,
The material was all in good taste.

The migbaat was wound around the head,
It was shaped into a pointed hat,
It was an impressive wardrobe of items
How did they manage all that?

The Aifod and the mitznefet,
Choshen mishpat, tzitz and me’il,
The Cohen was dressed in these items,
Covered from his head to his heel.

Who wore the first 4 items?
Who wore all of the rest?
If you know the answers to the riddle,
You just past this week’s Parsha test!


Parshas Tetzaveh is the only sedra in the Torah from Moshe's birth until his death without Moshe's name in it.  Why?  Some Meforshim say it is because this Parsha is close to Moshe Rabbeinu’s yartzeit (7th Adar), and the absence of his name is symbolic of his yarzeit.

 Others suggest that by Cheit Haegel the people sinned and Hashem was going to wipe them out and start over again. Moshe begged Hashem to save them or: "Erase me from your book that You have written!" The effect of those words, therefore, was that somewhere in the Torah, his name would be erased. Thus it is that in the week when we remember his passing, Moshe’s name is gone.
Since Moshe’s name is not mentioned in this Parsha, play a game that you can speak but are not allowed to say the letter M (for Moshe).  See how hard it is to communicate!

·  Have the kids prepare a paper doll and clothing to dress the doll.  Have them make a shirt, pants, belt, turban, coat, apron and strip (or help them make it).  Let them dress up the doll and explain to them the clothing of the Kohen. 

·  On top of the mizbeach was a crown.  Have your kids make a crown before Shabbat.  At the Shabbat table pass the crown around and each person can say something special about himself.

 What you will need:

1.     Rectangular cake
2.     Frosting divided into 12
3.     Food coloring to color the frosting
·        Mix each frosting with a different color.
·        Frost the cake in 12 even squares.
Or you can use fondant and frost each fondant a different color and shape then into small rectangles.

Kohen Gadol Clothing:

What you will need:
1.     Cookie dough
2.     Clothing cookie shapes
3.     Sugar icing

·        Shape the cookie dough into clothing shapes.  Turban, shirt, pants, belt, coat, apron. 
·        Discuss the different garments the Kohen Gadol had to wear.

Recipe for Rectangular cake:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups oil
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups strong hot coffee
1.     1 Preheat oven to 350degrees Fahrenheit.
2.     Beat eggs and oil together in large bowl with electric mixer.
3.     Add sugar and vanilla and beat until well-mixed.
4.     In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cocoa together.
5.     Slowly add dry ingredients to large bowl with liquids, scraping down occasionally, until evenly moistened.
6.     Slowly add coffee, pouring over the mixture.
7.     Pour mixture into a greased, 9 x 13 pan.
8.     Bake 1 hour.
Let the cake cool.  In the meantime pour  6 ounces of chocolate chips with a teaspoon of oil in the microwave.  (You can double the recipe for a thicker chocolate layer).  Pour over the cooled cake and put in the refrigerator to harden.

For the frosting: whip a container of dessert whip and add a package of vanilla frosting. Take a small amount in a bowl and mix with desired food coloring.  You can divide each color into 12 small bowls or you can take one bowl and place one color at a time.  Shape into squares on the cooled cake.
You can also use colored fondant and shape them into squares and place them on your cake.

Thought of the week:
The sin of Adam and Chava brought many unfortunate changes to the world as detailed in Sefer Bereishit. The Shlah adds that if not for Adam and Chava's sin, there would not be specific holy places in the world because holiness would be everywhere. There would also be no need to choose specific people (Kohanim and Leviim) for Avoda and Kehuna because everyone would be worthy.

 According to the Shlah, we had our chance to rectify Adam and Chava's sin at Matan Torah but we squandered our opportunity. Through Moshe's intervention, the situation was partially salvaged, and Hashem allowed us to build the Mishkan. This ensured that there was one place on earth in which Hashem's Shechina dwelled. In the Mishkan, Aharon was chosen in place of Adam to come closer to Hashem. During his service in the Mishkan, Aharon wore bigdei kehuna which were bigdei kodesh in place of the clothes that Adam and Chava had to wear as a result of their sin. The Shlah writes that the future geula will usher in an era where the world will finally return to its original status at creation. May we speedily merit to witness that special time!

Answer to parsha puzzle:  (The ordinary Kohen (kohein Hedyot) wore the first four items and the Kohein Gadol wore the last 5.)

Enjoy!  Have a fantastic Shabbat!  Ruchie :)

Check out our creative mishloach manot ideas that are updated constantly.  You will find it in the previous post :-).

Have a wonderful Shabbat! 


·  The parasha elaborates on Hashem's command to Moshe to build the Mishkan.

·  Hashem tells Moshe to tell Bnei Yisrael to bring "trumot" (donations) in order to build the Mishkan. Every Jew should bring just what they are able to bring.

·  Afterwards, the Torah gives exact instructions how to build the Mishkan and its "keilim" (vessels)- Aron Hakodesh, Kaporet, the Shulchan, the Menorah, the Clothes which will cover the Mishkan, the wooden Planks used to build the Mishkan, the Parochet, and the Mizbeach HaNechoshet.


Here is a great way for my father and I to learn a little bit of Parsha each week, even though we live far from each other.
( I like the play on words of Abba in the word Shabbat and bat (daughter...) and Imabba meaning "with Abba" and Ima Abba written together!  Thanks Abba and Ima :-)

This week's Parsha starts out by saying that Hashem told Moshe to tell Bnei Yisrael "Vayikchu li teruma”- And let them take for Me an offering.
The ALSHUCH asks, why does the parsha begin with the words take for me a teruma when it should have said,  give for me a teruma. The explanation is that  the person who gives tzedaka gets a lot more than if he receives. 
We can learn from here that a person who gives tzedaka will be matzliach.  He will have שפע, ברכה והצלחה.   The gematria of those three words equals Vayikchu li truma.

In Perek 25/18 the Torah tells us about the keruvim. According to Rashi, these keruvim had the face of a baby.  In Bereishit 3/24 it also talks about the keruvim when Hashem took Adam out of Gan Eden.  There it states that they were angels of destruction.
The question is, what were these Kruvim?  Were they beautiful angels or angels of destruction?  We can learn from here that the environment can strongly influence the actions of children.  If children are sent to good schools and they see positive influences at home, they can hopefully turn into beautiful angels.  If they are in a bad environment, they can turn into angels of destruction.

This week’s parsha we learned in detail how the Bnei Yisrael were supposed to build the Mishkan.  We learn how they built the kruvim (Cherubs).  "And the Kruvim  shall stretch out their wings on high... and their faces shall look one to another "(Terumah-25:20)

When Bnei Yisroel fulfilled Hashem’s commands, the Kruvim would face each other; and when Bnei Yisroel did not fulfill Hashem’s commands, the Kruvim would face the walls of the room..
Have 2 players sit back to back each holding a doll or a stuffed animal.  Tell some things about yourself that are true or false.  Have each player face the doll towards them if they think it is true or away from them if they think it is false.  Have them look at each other’s dolls to see if they have the right answer.  Talk about the kruvim and how they faced each other or turned away from each other. 

  This weeks parsha talks about lechem hapanim.  Why not set some time to bake Challot with your kids.  You could have them help you roll it, knead it, separate the challa and glaze it.  They will be proud of their accomplishments at the Shabbat table.  

·        This week’s parsha talks about the ability of giving something that is yours to someone else.  Give Tzedaka with your kids this week.  Go through their closet and let them pick something they do don’t wear anymore and give it to a poor person.


Hashem spoke to Moshe in this Parsha,
And asked that Bnei Yisrael bring a truma.
Each person should bring what his heart desired,
There was no specific amount that was required.

Anything they give would be perfect, just right,
Gold, brass, silver, or oil for the light.
Skin of ram dyed red, skins of seals, acacia wood,
Everyone contributed whatever they could.

Scarlet yarn, fine linen, goats hair that was great,
And onyx stones for the eifod and for the breastplate.
Or incense of spices and oil for anointing,
These are ideas of what they could bring.

They could contribute one thing, they could bring more.
Do you know what they needed all of these things for?
There is a famous quote that Hashem does guarantee,
“I will dwell amongst you if you make this for me”.

Can you find this pasuk, can you say it out loud?
You know this week’s riddle and I am so proud.

1.     A small rectangular cake
2.     Pipe cleaners
3.     2 plastic babies

Thought of the week:
The Midrash teaches us that when the Shechina of Hashem descended to "dwell" in the Mishkan, it was the first time that the Schechina dwelled in this world since the sin of Eytz Hada'at. The Midrash also teaches us that when Hashem would speak to Moshe, the "voice" of Hashem would descend from the heaven and project from between the two Kruvim. It is truly inspiring to know that the vessels and Mishkan, all man made objects, were raised from the mundane to the highest levels of holiness. Similarly, the Nefesh Hachayim teaches us that our mitzvoth can ascend to reach even the loftiest of spiritual worlds. Conversely, the Nefesh Hachayim also teaches that when Titus defiled the physical Beit Hamikdash, he was only able to do so because the Jews had already defiled the spiritual Beit Hamikdash with their sins. Man has the ability of reaching the highest spiritual levels or to defile them. If we set our minds to it, our Torah and Mitzvot can rebuild the spiritual Beit Hamikdash which will be quickly followed with the physical Beit Hamikdash as well.     

  Answer to parsha puzzle: 
(The Bnei Yisrael were bringing all these items to build the mishkan.  “Veasu li mikdash veshachanti betocham”.)    
             Enjoy!  Have a great Shabbat!

An eye for an eye, hand for a hand, tooth for a tooth.

We bless the new month of Adar 1 which will be on Tuesday and Wednesday!


·      After Bnei Yisrael receive the Ten Commandments, Hashem gives them many more laws (mishpatim) which comprise part of the mitzvot.

·  Some of the laws we learn in this week’s parsha are: Shmitta, Eved Ivri, Loans, as wells as things that are forbidden, like Witchcraft.

·  At the end of the parsha, Hashem calls Moshe up the mountain again, to receive the commandments and Torah from Him. Moshe goes up for forty days and forty nights.

Here is a great way for my father and I to learn a little bit of Parsha each week, even though we live far from each other.  
( I like the play on words of Abba in the word Shabbat and Imabba meaning "with Abba" and Ima Abba written together!  Thanks Abba and Ima :-)!

 In this week's Parsha it starts out by saying:

"ואלה המשפטים אשר תשים לפניהם".  

These are the laws that you should put on them."  The Torah here teaches us that Mishpatim (laws) are Mitzvot Ben Adam Lachavero. First you have to learn how to treat your fellow brother, and then after that, comes learning Torah. Derech Eretz Kadma latorah.  What an important lesson


an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, hand for a hand....

 Why does it say Ayin Tachat Ayin?  An eye under an eye?  It should say an eye for an eyeWe learn from here that this Ayin refers to money.  How can we learn that from here?  Take each letter in the word Ayin, (ayin, yud, nun), and see what comes after that letter.  What comes after the letter ayin?  Pey.  What comes after yud? kuf.  Affter nun comes samech.  If you take those three letters pey, kuf and samech, you get kesef. So we can see from here that you do not take out an eye for an eye literally, but you have to pay the person back with money

This Parsha teaches us how to behave,
Between a neighbor or a friend,
One must be careful how he acts,
From beginning until the end.

We learn that one must be aware,
If he plows or digs a pit,
He must think and also make sure,
That no one falls into it.

If an animal does, then here we learn,
What he has to do….
Do you know the answer to this?
Look in your chumash for the first clue.

If a person has a slave,
He has to guarantee
that after a certain amount of time,
he has to let him free.

Do you know how many years that is,
This is question number two,
and if he wants to stay some more,
what must the owner do?

What is something that we can’t have together?
This is question number three.
What is it that we cannot eat?
Do you know what it could be?

There are many laws that we can learn,
From the parsha we read today,
And one more thing do you know,
From what must you stay away?


This week’s parsha talks about the mitzvah of Hashavat Aveida, returning something that was lost.  Here is a fun treasure hunt game that you could play.
Treasure Hunt.  Find items that you can hide around the house. Make sure you place a clue at each item you placed, that will lead everyone to the next item. Make the treasure the yummy parsha cake. Give everyone their first clue. Let them head out to find the clues and see who will arrive at the treasure first.
To make it interesting, give clues based on this week’s parsha. 
This week talks about staying away from lies- מדבר שקר תרחק.  Talk about how important it is not to speak Lashon Hara. Play the telephone game.  The first person whispers a phrase into someone’s ear.  The next one repeats it into someone else’s ear.  When the last person hears it, he must say it out loud.  See if it came out the exact way as it started.  This is a good lesson to teach the child that once you say something bad about someone, it might change along the way and sound very different than what you said.

Another activity to do during the week is counting a bunch of feathers and placing them in a bag.  Go outside on a windy day and open up the bag letting the feathers fly away.  After a while have the children collect the feathers.  Do you have the same amount that you started with?  Some of the feathers got lost in the wind.  This teaches us that when you say something bad about someone, people start spreading the news.  You could never take it back.

This Parsha talks about Shmita.  Shmita occurs in the seventh year.  See how many things in Judaism you can come up with that have the number seven in them.  You would be surprised how many things there are!

In this week’s Parshas Mishpatim, Hashem teaches many laws on how to act and behave with another fellow man.  Why not make a heart shaped cake to remember that “Vehavta Lereacha kamocha”  treat your neighbor like you would like to be treated. You will love this dessert wholeheartedly!

Chodesh Adar:

What you will need:
1.     Cookie dough
2.     Cookie shaped fish
3.     Gummy fish
Answer to Parsha Puzzle: 1)When anyone opens a pit or leaves one uncovered and an animal falls into it, the person leaving the pit uncovered is responsible for the harm done to the animal. He must make fair payment for the loss but may keep the dead animal.  2) he shall serve six years and in the seventh be freed. 3) milk and meat you cannot have together 4) Midvar sheker tirchak- stay away from lies.
Enjoy!  Have a great Shabbat!
