Torah Portion: B’Shallach (And He sent) Exodus(Sh’mot) 13:17-17:16

Torah Portion:  B’Shallach (And He sent) Exodus(Sh’mot) 13:17-17:16

Haftorah Reading: Judges 4:4-5:31

Today we study the Torah portion covering the physical beginning of the Exodus along with the complaining of the people over having no water and no food. We also read of the final defeat of Pharaoh’s army followed by the beautiful “Song of the Sea” by Moshe and Miriam.

Bo(Come) Exodus(Sh’mot) 10:1-13:16

Torah Portion:  Bo(Come) Exodus(Sh’mot) 10:1-13:16

Haftorah Reading: Jeremiah 46:13-28

Tonight, we come to the climax of G-d’s hand freeing the people from their four hundred years in Egypt. I want to mention the opening word of this portion which is “Bo.” Translated into English it is Go. However, this is a Hebrew word that has as its most prominent meaning “Come.” When looked at in this light we can just hear G-d saying to Moshe, “Come into Pharaoh.” G-d was assuring Moshe that He, G-d, was already there before him. He was not to fear Pharaoh or what he might threaten to do, for G-d was with Moshe. I pray we each can hold on to this truth in our own life. No matter what lies before us G-d is already there waiting for us to rest in Him.

Haftorah Reading: Ezekiel 28:25-29:21

 

Tonight, we cover Moshe’s initial meeting with Pharaoh and seven out of ten of the plagues. I would like us to cover some spiritual truths that could be important to us. Let’s begin by talking about the names of G-d that we find in our Torah reading and the relevance of the Sacred Name of G-d expressed in Exodus/Sh’mot 7:5.
