Weekly Torah Portion – Shemot

This week’s torah portion, Shemot, marks the beginning of the second book of Torah – the Book Of Exodus. In these early stories of moving towards liberation, we find a Moses who is hesitant to lead the people out of slavery: what if they do not listen to me, he asks. Yet they do. Most of the time we are more likely to be surprised than for our expectations of complete failure met.

Welcome to the “Raising Holy Sparks” podcast! Hope you enjoy these short weekly insights into the torah portion! This week we dive deep into the Parshah of Shemot.

Sources mentioned in connection with this week’s torah portion:

  • Exodus 4:1 – “What if they do not believe me and do not listen to me?!”
  • Exodus 4:29-31 – “Then Moses and Aaron went and assembled all the elders of the Israelites. Aaron repeated all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses, and he performed the signs in the sight of the people, and the people were convinced.”

Thanks for listening and looking forward to being on this journey through the books of the Torah with you!
