The Book of Exodus Session II

In this ongoing series on the Book of Shemot we learned through a series of commentaries on the the first verse of chapter two.  It a fascinating to see how the Rabbis of the Talmud have an understanding of a verse (cited by Rashi) that is rejected by Ibn Ezra and Ramban.  You can find the Hebrew and English of the sources that we studied at this link.

In addition we saw a deep insight into the notion of redemption and the redeemer as one who is always “on the way” (lech).

We then went on to discuss some of the leadership traits of Moshe.

We concluded with some material on Pesach.
