Parasha Beshalach Weekly Summary – With video clips from Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz, Rabbi Asher Wegbreit, Rabbi Mendel Kessin

Starting out the week with a Q&A with Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz through the Rabbi’s vast knowledge and depth of Torah offers such balanced, well thought out, compassionate yet conservative approach to halachic questions by the Rabbi’s students. Here are some examples of the questions addressed in the video:

-Should a ger (convert to Judaism) say “shelo asani goy” (that I was not made a non-Jew)?

-What is the Jewish view of acupuncture, qi, etc?

-What is the importance of physical beauty?

-Should one eat while learning?

-How could the Day of Judgment, filled with fear, fall on Shabbos, filled with rest?

-Should a religious person commit tax evasion in Israel?

-What are the halachic considerations of moving a parent into a nursing home?

Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit share in this !Short Clip! a very easy path to improving your connection to Hashem through intention while doing mitzvot. Simple approach.

This Rabbi in this !Short Clip” shares that the Alter Rebbe (the founder of Chabad chasidus) tells us in the Tanya that everything we do really does matter and we can change all of existing with one difference in our actions – this can be viewed as scary or empowering (or both):

Rabbi Mendel Kessin shares how the “irrationality” of Hashem during Akeida Yitzchak (the Binding of Isaac) towards Avraham Avinu is the shield the Jews have had since then from all the sins. Our loyalty to Hashem as Jews exemplified by Avraham Avinu is with us even today.

In this shiur by Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz on the weekly parasha show all aspects of the splitting of the sea and how we can relate in directly to modern times. There are a lot of parallels that we can learning from.

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.
