    Jewish Idealism

    There were Jews who were willing to cooperate with the governmental authorities in policing the Jewish slave society. Eventually, these Jews also found themselves to be the victims of the Pharaoh and his cruel decree.

    On Not Obeying Immoral Orders

    The opening chapters of Exodus plunge us into the midst of epic events. Yet it is one small, often overlooked episode that deserves to be seen as a turning-point in the history of humanity. Its heroines are two remarkable women, Shifra and Puah.

    Reluctant Heroes & Jewish History

    But is this really Moshe? Does the great defender of Israel – humble as he may surely be – not want to help save Am Yisrael from their dreadful plight?! It almost seems that Moshe is more concerned for himself than for us!

    Are The Jews Traitors?

    A common accusation against Jews is that they hold a divided loyalty. This is true but it's not the divided loyalty that most people think.

    As a Hammer Smashes Rock

    Why are so many elements in Tanach only clarified by connecting different sections of Biblical text? We should understand that all of Tanach is one book, which is composed of 24 sub-books.

    The Value of Nationhood

    Translated by Hillel Fendel

    In the Book of Shmot, we are no longer individuals, as in Breishit, but rather begin to appear in history as a Nation. Why is a national framework so critical?

    What Israel Does to Your Mind

    In this week's Torah reading Hashem promises Moshe he will redeem the nation of Israel out of Egypt and he will take them to a good and broad land. How can such a small land be called broad? The Natziv explains this issue.

    A Sad Secret – Lashon Hara Brings National Agony

    Moshe’s first action as an emerging leader was that he saw an Egyptian beating an Israelite and killed the Egyptian (Shemot 2:11-12). This was followed by confronting two Israelites fighting and trying to stop them, only to be scorned, “Who has placed you as an officer and judge over us? Will you kill me the way that you killed the Egyptian?” (ibid. 14). Moshe was then sought by Paroh and slated for execution, but he managed to escape to Midian.
