5780 — Bo: What Our Stories Tell About Us

Posted by Tovah Leah Nachmani on January 27, 2020
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Torah, Shemot (Exodus), Bo

Very often there is a significant lesson for us and others in the stories that emanate from the smallest moments of our daily lives. What does it take to fulfill the mitzvah of telling the story of the 10 plagues? And how does the way we tell the story reflect upon us? To what extent do our stories not only express our beliefs, but also help to shape and feed the beliefs we hold about ourselves, about the people who support and inspire us, and about a God who is in our midst?
