This week features:
Recharging in the Month of Shvat
The First of Our New Months: Marking Our Time With G-d
Bring on the month of Shvat ! It is time for all Israel to crawl out from our winter hideaway and get in line for a shot of Divine cosmic love and redemption on Tu B’Shvat, the 15th of Shvat, the new year for trees and man. Meanwhile, back on the banks of the Nile, here in Parashat Bo, G-d is ramping up the plagues He is raining down upon Egypt, while at the very same time welcoming Israel into the world of eternal commandments and commitments: The new moon, the Pesach offering and total redemption.
Are the ten plagues a thing of the past? Or are they happening again today, as foretold, before our very eyes?
