Parshat Shemot

By: Jeremy Siegman

In our Parsha we meet Moshe Rabeinu, who will be the main charachter in all the following Chumashim. Who Is Moshe Rabeinu? The first ten psukim about him dont mention any names - not his parents, not his sisters and even not his. Why start the story of this great leader so encryptly? In the story of Mosh Rabeinu, unlike almost any other of the Torah heroes, we read a few stories about his childhood, and about his meeting with others - Hebrews and non-Hebrews. What is the purpose of these stories? What can we learn from them about Moshe Rabeinu and about us
