Weekly Torah Portion: Shmot

Torah from the Old City of Jerusalem.

What is truly chilling about Torah's penetrating description of the Egyptian exile and descent into slavery is not in its revelation of the horrors and dangers that the children of Israel faced in those days.

It is the shocking similarity between those days and the times we are living in today. A wake-up call, we pray, for our brothers in exile.
