TORAH TUESDAYS: PARSHAT BESHALACH
BY HENNIE BLACK
In this week’s Torah portion of Beshalach, the Jewish people find themselves at a roadblock–the Sea of Reeds are ahead of them and the Egyptian army is pursuing them from behind.
Miraculously the sea splits and the Jewish people cross over to dry land, as the Egyptians drown in the sea. The Jewish people burst into song, expressing their praise and appreciation to Hashem. It is interesting that the medium used to express their utter exaltation is not prayer but a song.
