Weekly Torah Portion: Ki Tisa

Torah from the Old City of Jerusalem.

The debacle of the golden calf is a cautionary tale about the dangers of trying to shape G-d in our image.

It testifies to the danger of making G-d more compliant with our own limitations and self serving goals.

G-d presides over His people on His terms, and not the other way around.
