Parasha Bo Weekly Summary – With video clips from Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz, Rabbi Alon Anava, and Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman

Going to try a new summary based approach for this week by posting some basic thoughts and then adding in videos from the Rabbis further detailing the general parasha topic.

This past Shabbat’s weekly parasha was Bo which encompasses the last three weeks (of the ten total) – locusts, darkness and the killing of firstborn children.

In this video by Rabbi Alon Anava, the Rabbi shares how we can clean ourselves out (out of personal Egypt) before we do the mitzvot that Hashem gave us.

Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz in this first !Short Clip! is taken from the story of Rav Nachman of Breslov of the prince who thought he was a chicken and how the concept of acting your way into better thinking applies here….fake it until you make it (ie. changing your behavior regardless of your thoughts and feelings) as a solution. While the second video is the entire lecture encompassing this !Short Clip! and the rest of the shiur about the weekly Parasha Bo.

Lastly, in this lecture by Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman, the Rabbi explains how the last three plagues in Egypt represent the concept of free will versus destiny and how Jewish thought embraces the obvious paradox between the two as they both co-exsist.
