PARACHAT PARA :

- La lecture publique de Parachat Parah se fait tantôt le Chabbat qui suit Pourim, tantôt le second Chabbat après Pourim. Dans tous les cas, le « Chabbat Parah » précède immédiatement le « Chabbat Ha'Hodech » (la dernière des « Quatre Parachiot ») sans interruption.  - Cette lecture tirée de la paracha 'Houkat, traite de la mitsva de la « Vache Rousse », à partir de laquelle étaient confectionnées les eaux lustrales qui servaient à la purification des personnes ayant été en contact avec un mort. Cette purification était essentielle, à l'approche du mois de Nissan, afin de pouvoir apporter le sacrifice pascal (le « Korbane Pessa’h »).    Certains pensent que cette lecture représente une obligation de la Torah (à l'instar de Parachat Zakhor), dans le sens qu'elle remplit l'obligation de la Torah de se souvenir du péché du Veau d'Or pour lequel l'expiation a été obtenue par la mitsva de la Vache Rousse.

 

 

RÉSUMÉ DE PARACHAT KI-TISSA:

Par l’intermédiaire de Moïse, D.ieu demande aux enfants d’Israël que chacun, pour le rachat de sa personne, donne un demi sicle d’argent pour le Sanctuaire. Des instructions sont également données pour la fabrication de la cuve d’airain destinée aux ablutions et de son support. De même est indiqué le mode de confection de l’huile d’onction et de l’encens. Deux artisans au cœur empli de sagesse, Betsalel et Aholiab sont chargés de la construction du Sanctuaire. A nouveau, le respect du Chabbat est rappelé.  

Moise, semblant tarder à redescendre du Mont Sinaï, le peuple se fait un veau d’or et se livre à son adoration. D.ieu veut détruire les enfants d’Israël, qualifiés de « peuple à la nuque dure ». Mais Moïse intercède. Il descend de la montagne, portant les Tables de la Loi sur lesquelles sont gravés les Dix Commandements.     

Voyant le peuple danser autour de l’idole, il brise les Tables, détruisant le veau d’or. Il entreprend de châtier les coupables. Puis Moïse retourne vers D.ieu et le supplie de pardonner « Sinon, dit-il, efface moi de Ton livre que Tu as écrit ».  D.ieu pardonne mais la faute exercera ses effets pour longtemps. D.ieu propose d’abord d’envoyer Son ange pour qu’il suive le peuple. Mais Moïse obtient que D.ieu Lui-même accompagne Son peuple vers la Terre Promise.

  13. ·  Why did Moshe break the Tablets?
    32:19 - Moshe reasoned: If those who have estranged themselves from the Torah are forbidden to partake in even a single commandment (Pesach sacrifice), surely the entire Torah cannot be given to a whole nation which has estranged itself from Hashem!
  14. ·  How can two brothers belong to two different tribes?
    32:27 - Half-brothers, sharing the same mother.
  15. ·  Why did Moshe ask that his name be erased from the Torah?
    32:32 - So people shouldn't say "Moshe was unworthy to plead for mercy on behalf of the Jewish people."
  16. ·  How has the sin of the golden calf affected the Jewish People throughout history?
    32:34 - Whenever Hashem punishes the Jewish People, part of that punishment comes as payment for the sin of the golden calf.
  17. ·  In verse 33:2, Hashem says that the inhabitants of Eretz Canaan would be driven out of the Land. In that verse, only six of the seven Canaanite nations are mentioned.
  18. How did Hashem show that He forgave the Jewish People?
    33:14 - He agreed to let His Shechina dwell among them.
  19. How did Moshe become wealthy?
    34:1 - Moshe carved the Tablets out of precious stone. Hashem commanded Moshe to keep the leftover fragments.
  20. How do the light rays shining from Moshe's face show us the powerful effect of sin?
    34:35 - Before the sin of the golden calf, the people would not have been afraid to look at the light rays, but after the sin they were afraid.
