‘bh” VAERA

This weeks Torah Portion Vaera translates to: “and I appeared” this portion addresses the Jewish exile out of Egypt.  Moses was sent by G-D to redeem them but Pharaoh was stubborn and things got worse for the Jews.  This left Moses disillusioned and upset and he cried out to G-D!  “Now you will see what I shall do to Pharaoh.” G-D spoke to Moses and said “I am G-D” and proceeded with the re affirmation of the divine promise and covenant to redeem and save Israel and to take them onto him as his nation.  G-D has many names… these divine names refer to the divine attributes. according to his working… such as justice and strictness, divine mercy and compassion… this distinction of divine names… when implemented our human eyes fail to see the ways of G-D.  “I am dealing with you and Israel with the attribute of mercy and compassion.  Trusting in the word…knowing that G-D is for our good and everything that happens is for our benefit.
