Weekly Parshah Reflections – Beshalach

In the torah portion of Beshalach, the Israelites finally escape from Egypt and make their way to the Promised Land. As they roam through the desert they begin to complain of hunger. They are given manna. Soon they will complain about that as well. What does their story teach us about a positive outlook and when we have it?

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 Beshalach.

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

  • Exodus 16:3 – The Israelites said to them, “If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots, when we ate our fill of bread! For you have brought us out into this wilderness to starve this whole congregation to death.”
  • The manna: “It had all sorts of flavors, the Israelites tasting in it each what they desired” (Exodus Rabbah 25:3)

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