Chassidic Masters: Moses: The Birth of a Leader

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 12:00:00 EST

Chassidic Masters: The Brick Factory

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 12:00:00 EST

Before they could become G-d’s chosen people, the children of Israel had to first undergo forced servitude in the “smelting pit of Egypt,” primarily in the manufacture of bricks. Why bricks?

Our sages tell us that the very same donkey which served Abraham to carry his wares on the way to the "Binding of Isaac" is the donkey which Moses used to transport his wife and children on the road to Egypt. And this is the very donkey on which the Moshiach will appear as "a pauper riding on a donkey"

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 12:00:00 EST

Numbers are the ultimate equalizer. Names identify and individualize. Love does both.
