Be’shalach (Audio Portion)
It may be the most iconic biblical image and miracle ever: The parting of the Sea of Reeds. And yet, as impressive as that moment was, it is not enough to inspire long-term loyalty of Israel to Father Yah or to Moshe! Still, at least for a moment, the awe of the Song of Moshe echoes loudly in our ears to inspire us today. Then they mysterious bread from heaven falls, and it is so amazing that the Israelites can only name it “what is it”? Then one epic battle with Amalek remains, and it is a chance for a young commander named Joshua to get some needed battle experience. It doesn’t get more exciting than this.
