The fourth portion of Exodus, Beshalah/Sent out, is read from the Torah scroll on Shabbat, January 23, 2016. See how my wife Miriam and I link this Torah portion to our life together through photographs and Torah Tweet texts at http://bibleblogyourlife.blogspot.co.il/2014/01/exodus-4-multiple-pathways-to-freedom.html
We heard the Torah portion Beshalah read in our hotel synagogue by the water of the Dead Sea near the springs and date palms of an oasis.
“A righteous person will flourish like a date palm.” (Psalm 92)
“And he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, toward the stream spreading its roots, and it shall not notice the heat's arrival, and its foliage shall be fresh.” (Jeremiah 17:8)
