The commentaries wonder why the Torah does not specify who called to Moses, but instead use the ambiguous terminology of "He called to Moses". The Netivot Shalom offered a novel explanation for this.

The Torah, he states, is informing us that Hashem calls out to every person through the events that happen to him or her during his or her lifetime. In every situation in which a person finds himself, he can "hear" Hashem speak to him if he wishes. Even though God's calling is not blatantly obvious the voice is there for us to tune into.

Rabbi Abittan z'sl often taught us that through technology we can better understand the sodot, the secrets of the Torah

This week, we begin the third book of the Five Books of Moses, The Book of Leviticus.

At the center of this week’s portion of Ki Tissa is the worship of the Golden Calf, but I believe more important than the sin is the lesson of Divine Mercy as an answer for our propensity to sin. We are taught the thirteen attributes of Hashem which we repeat whenever we beseech the Al-Mighty for compassion and forgiveness in the face of our transgressions. And we hear the words which man always longs to hear, Salachti KidVarecha – I have forgiven according to your request.
