Shemot (Audio Portion)
Joseph is gone and also, apparently forgotten, at least by the Egyptians. Now dark times fall on the Hebrews of Goshen as they go from valued partners to hated enemies and from the pinnacle of power in Egypt to the lowest of the low, slaves who can’t even get straw for their bricks. But a new hero arises too. Moshe is born and begins what may be the most important journey in all of the Tanakh, from prince, to fugitive, to failed leader and then to Lawgiver. Let’s rest the clock again as an entire new adventure is about to begin.
