Jethro - weekly Torah portion

Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, arrives at camp with his daughter Zipporah, Moses’ wife, and his two grandchildren, Moses’ sons. Moses tells Jethro all that has happened to the Israelites and their exodus from Egypt. On the following day Jethro gets the opportunity to see Moses work. “Moses sat to judge the people, and the people stood about Moses from the morning until the evening.” Jethro is flabbergasted of what he experiences there and exclaims, “What is this thing that you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit as judge and all the people stand about you from morning until evening?” This catches Moses by surprise and he responds, “Because the people come to me to inquire of God. W

Beshalach - weekly Torah portion

Moses gets the instruction, “‘lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, and the sons of Israel shall go through the midst of the sea on dry land.

Vaera - weekly Torah portion

Majestically signs, a cane that transformed to a crocodile, or maybe a serpent, the water of the Nile that turned into blood, and still, “Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them” – the Pharaoh is not willing to attend to the request “Let my People go”. Truth should be said, the Pharaoh is not the only one not listening to Moses and Aaron.

I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. Then I will take you for My people, and I will be your God; and you shall know t
