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.

Fruits of the Orchard – Vayigash By Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – Shares about this “dramatic” parashah coming up with the clashing of two worlds represented by Yehuda and Yosef. The baal tshuva and the religious from birth. The Moshiach ben Yehuda and the Moshiach ben Yosef. Also, the Yosef cried eight times showing the power in being sensitive and emotional even as the most powerful man in the World. How did he learn to cry? From her Mother Rachel. According to Rav Ginsberg – the Hebrew word for tear is dima (dalet, mem, ayin, heh) which is the gematria of 119. Since two eyes drop tears X2 equals 238 which is the gematria of Rachel. Role models for Jewish leadership exemplified in both Yehuda and Yosef (repentance and sensitivity). Rabbi Trugman also shows how much Yaakov and Yosef’s life’s parallel each other throughout the events that they both experienced in their respective lives. Many more details in the video.

Fruits of the Orchard – Vayeitzei By Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman

Also, Rabbi Trugman explains why “the place” is stated six different times.

Name of Hashem at burning bush – reverse is Moshe Rabbeinu
Tishrei – Tuf, Shin, Raish….Aleph
Shabbat – reversing the word means light

Seventy Faces – Multiplying Words or Letters in a Word & Adding Two Words Together By Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – Nice class on how when combining certain words in the Torah and their numerical equivalent the combination reflects the essence of the two separate words. For example, Isaac and Rebbeca combined numerically equals prayer (their Hebrew words – Yitzchak plus Rivka equals tefillah). This is because they both prayed for children together in the Torah. Another example is Yaakov plus Satan equals Yisroel. This comes from the story of when Yaakov wrestled with the angel before meeting his twin brother Esav in person the next day. Watch the video for other unique examples.

Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz – Orwell’s 1984 and Korach’s Rebellion and Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman – The Book of Numbers – Parshat Korach

Both these videos focus on this week’s upcoming Torah parashah (in Eretz Yisroel) of Korach. They both explain the details of how after all the witnessed miracles and the level of righteousness of the people involved can an actual rebellion take place. The journey from that to this is almost unbelievable and the details involved that help make sense of this is quite interesting.
