Parashat B’shalach

The book of Exodus records an incredible transformation for the people of Israel. Throughout this book of the Torah, God helps the Israelites move from a place of dependence to a state of self sufficiency.

Mo Glazman
A Celebration of Miracles (Parashat Beshallach)

Mo Glazman  |  January 30, 2015

On Shabbat Shirah, we celebrate our liberation out of Egypt. We acknowledge the supernatural miracle of the Red Sea splitting, our people crossing the threshold to freedom and celebrating with vigorous song and dance. For many, this is the quintessential miracle of our shared narrative—rooted in God’s nautical wizardry.

The scholars are not sure this event actually happened. But I’m not sure it matters whether it’s provable or not. From my perspective, the miracle lies in the powerful portrait of Jews holding hands, wading into the water, trusting that it would divide, believing they would make it across despite a staunch enemy in pursuit.
