The Torah In Haiku: Ki Tisa

The Torah In Haiku: Ki Tisa

This portion includes
G-d's "Middot HaRachamim"*
A prayer for Selichot*

* Middot HaRachamim = Attributes of mercy
Selichot = forgiveness

Exodus 34:6-7: G-d passed before Moses and proclaimed, Adonai, Adonai, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in kindness and truth. Extending kindness to the thousandth generation, forgiving iniquity, transgression and sin; yet G-d does not remit all punishment, but visits iniquity of the parents upon the children, and upon the children's children, to the third and to the fourth generations."
