This week’s parsha discusses many different laws. One of them is that a man who is responsible for digging or uncovering an open pit would be held liable for damage the pit may cause for example, if an animal falls into the pit.

We made a bundt cake which has an open hole in the center. We used a parve bar of Megadim chocolate to represent a cow that fell (they come with a cow imprint on them).
