JDMM: New Videos, Purim Video + addition to Art Gallery

ParshasKiSisa     > "Parshas Ki Sisa"

This week's parsha focuses on the topic of impatience. This was a major element in the sin of the Golden Calf.

Do you know what happened? What is the golden calf?

ParshasTetzaveh      > "Parshas Tetzaveh"

For deaf people, the element of surprise usually catches us more often than it does for hearing people. We don't hear people creeping up behind us, nor do we catch the knock on the door before somebody enters. This week's parsha talks about an article of clothing worn by the Kohen Gadol, or High Priest. It was a robe, and at the bottom, there were bells...

      > "Parshas Mishpatim"

We find a commandment for judges to not accept bribes. We tend to think that this type of behavior is only found in the secretive chambers of the courthouses, but the truth is: we sometimes practice different forms of bribery in our lives, on different levels.

     > "Parshas Terumah"

Did you know that there was something special about how the Menorah in the Temple was made, in contrast to the other Temple vessels?
