Shmot: Take Off Your Shoes

December 27, 2018

Aaron Roller

In this week's episode, we jump right in to the Book of Exodus with a wide-ranging discussion of the jam-packed Parshat Shmot. We discuss the enslavement of the Israelites, the heroism of anonymous women, the birth of Moses, the burning bush, and Moses' apparent failure to liberate his people at the end of the parsha (does that qualify as a cliffhanger?). We debate the sources of Pharaoh's antisemitism, probe Moses' qualities as a leader, and question why it seems things have to get worse before they get any better. Join us.
