E-Torah from Congregation B’nai Israel

Parsha Bo


Shabbat Shalom!

On Wednesday, we witnessed the swearing in of the first woman Vice President.  While long overdue, it was a welcome and moving sight.

How appropriate to see this example of women’s leadership during the time when we are reading the early chapters of the book of  Exodus!  The sages point out that the liberation from bondage, while associated with Moses, actually began with courageous women.  The midwives who refused to follow Pharaoh’s decree to put Hebrew children to death, the mother of Moses, the sister of Moses, and the daughter of Pharaoh herself all began the rebellion against cruelty and tyranny.

During a week we celebrate one woman’s achievement, we recall the women of the Torah who struck the first blows for freedom.

Shabbat Shalom


Rabbi Doug Sagal
