‘BH’ Mishpatim

Mishpatim is translated in English to “these are the judgements” Following the revelation at Sinai G-d legislates a series of laws for the people of Israel. Speaking of G-ds statutes and judgements… the Torah tells the Jew… he shall live by them. if he brings the whole of his life… action… emotion… reason and inwardness into the performance of a Mitzvah because it was given at Sinai, he recreates Sinai: the meeting of man and G-d. inspired by: Chabad.org and Torah Studies…

“BH” Yitro

this weeks Torah portion is named after Jethro…the priest of Midian…idol worshipper and Moses father in law. Jethro converted to Judaism after he saw all the miracles that G-D had performed for the Israelites in the desert. at the time of the giving of the Torah… G-D brought heaven down to earth for the righteous ones… according to their perception…and for the repentant… the world was being elevated to the divinity of heaven. both experiences are true…in our daily encounters with life’s challenges when we acknowledge that G-D is real… we hear him and it is as if we see him with our own eyes… igniting our souls to heights that defy human understanding!

‘BH’ Beshalach

this week’s Torah portion Beshalach translates to; “when he let go” literally “in having sent” which addresses the partying of the Red Sea for the Nation of Israel and the drowning of the pursuers. G-D had spoken to the Red Sea upon it’s inception and instructed the Sea in advance to split for the Nation of Israel. if the Sea would not have complied… the whole chapter would have been erased from Hashem’s Torah as if it never existed. the Israelites saw all the miracles that G-D had done for them… and as long as things were going well… they took it all in… when things went south… they complained that it was better in Egypt… at least they knew what to expect… slavery and all…it’s not enough to be free on a physical level… we have to be free from a spiritual perspective to break the shackles of everyday life in  this mundane world…


this weeks Torah portion BO translates to the command form of “go,” or “come”. G-D was sending Moses to go and return to Pharaoh in order to speak to him about the last plague that will happen to the Egyptians at midnight. the smiting of their first born. midnight is the time of the meeting of severity and kindness.  Come meaning…midnight is the time in which

G-Ds essence is revealed.. come with me… “certainly i will be with you”

we will be shown the future redemption as a reward for our faith in the almighty G-D which constitutes our most inward certainty and extends to every facet of our being! inspired by: Chabad teaching…
