Welcome to this week’s enlightening class on the Torah portion of Beshalach, where we delve into the transformative journey of the Israelites from slavery to freedom. This week, Rabbi Jian guides us through the powerful symbols of leaving Egypt, the splitting of the Red Sea, and the miraculous manna, drawing profound parallels to our personal struggles and victories. With a mix of wisdom and wit, Rabbi Jian uncovers the deep spiritual lessons embedded in these stories, inviting us to break free from our own limitations and embrace a life of faith, courage, and divine providence.
