Parashat Mishpatim comes to help Israel establish a just and caring society, a society that HaShem can be an intimate part of.

Parashat Shekalim - the Half Shekel Offering - is an invitation and an opportunity for all who want to be part of a better world and be a partner in the building of the Holy Temple, to do so.

We are each all only a half, but together we complete one another, and together with G-d we are One.
