Sweetness in Potential

by Devora Gila Berkowitz

Parshat Shemot

The Hebrews are suffering.

Babies are in danger.

Where is G-d?

The salvation is already in motion --
the savior, Moses, has been born!

But it'll take some decades before he actually carries out his role, before the Children of Israel can be freed from slavery.

The harshness of life moves parallel to its sweetness in potential.


  1. Somehow I feel as though this is the situation of 'Hebrews' today.

  2. Yes, even beyond that... it's the situation of the general world.

    My hope is that this blog will bring out more timely lessons for our personal growth through the teachings of the eternal Torah...
