Ki Tisa

By Rabba Yaffa Epstein

Rabba Yaffa Epstein retells the story of the breaking of the tablets containing the law from God received at Mount Sinai, aka the Ten Commandments. She shares not just the story of the Golden Calf and the anger of Moses but also a take on how we heal – tablets, hearts, humanity. There is a crack in everything, wrote Leonard Cohen, that’s how the light gets in. Join Rabba Epstein for more on this in our animated short on Ki Tisa.

Ki Tisa

By Sarah Gershman

Parshat Ki Tisa is one of those animated shorts that you’ve gotta SEE it to believe it.

The Israelites are out in the desert, and apparently have nothing better to do than melt down all their jewelry to build a golden calf. Sarah Gershman gives an EYEbrow raising explanation of what went down one hot summer’s day at Sinai, through a psychological lens.
