What were the most pressing needs of the fledgling nation upon leaving Egypt, and how did Hashem respond to these? In this podcast, Neima Novetsky will explore the verses that describe the nation’s first stop after leaving Yam Suf, the episode of the sweetening of the waters of Marah. There, Hashem provides the nation both with potable water and with “chukim and mishpatim”, commonly translated as laws and ordinances. Why is this the nation’s first stop? What messages does Hashem mean to impart to the young nation through His actions?
