Episode Description:

Welcome to this week’s captivating journey through the Torah portion of Bo, a pivotal moment in the Jewish narrative. Rabbi Jian invites you to soar with him into the depths of spiritual awakening and liberation, coinciding with the first day of the month of Aquarius. This class offers a profound exploration of the final plagues unleashed upon Egypt, emphasizing the internal battle each of us faces against our personal “Pharaohs” – the habits, fears, and egos that enslave us. Rabbi Jian, with his unique blend of humor, wisdom, and practical insights, promises to guide you through the spiritual significance of these narratives, making them relevant and transformative for our lives today.

Key Points

  • Facing Our Pharaohs: Rabbi Jian encourages us to confront our inner Pharaohs, the source of our negative traits and behaviors. He reassures us that these challenges are divinely placed for us to overcome and grow.
