Beshalach: Joshua Safran talks about Amelek
“Are ya ready for G-d?!” Moses asks the Israelites in Parshat Beshalach, during their epic flight out of Egypt. With the miracle of G-d parting the Red Sea, narrator Joshua Safran — a women’s rights advocating attorney featured in award-winning documentary Crime After Crime and author of Free Spirit: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid — reveals the chain of knowledge that began with Moses and the entire nation of Israel.
This is the most G‑dcasted parsha! Three interpretations are available. Check out what Eli Winkelman, founder of Challah for Hunger, has to say about manna and learn about the art of midrash with a story about Nachshon from Rabbi Jonah Pesner, Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC).
