Beshalach 5784: Choosing Faith

Posted by Pardes Faculty on January 25, 2024
Topics: Tanakh, Torah, Pardes from Jerusalem, Shemot (Exodus), Beshalach

Dive on in as Yiscah Smith joins Rabbi Zvi Hirschfield to discuss the story of the Red Sea, reminding us that we had to first jump into the water before it would split.

Can we view faith as a concious choice, rather than a reaction? If so, how can we find the strength and resilience to make this choice and hold to our faith when facing immense difficulties? During our discussion, Yiscah challenges us take responsibility for how we perceive the world, and to fight to see goodness despite the darkness we may encounter.
