Parashat Shabbat Shemot Readings and Video Commentary

Exodus 1:1 – 6:1; Isaiah 27:6 – 28:13; 29:22-23; Jeremiah 1:1 – 2:3

Commentary by Rabbi Chaim Richman, The Temple Institute, Jerusalem, Israel

„The book of Exodus is called in Hebrew the book of Names, (Shemot). Why? What’s in a name and why does Torah repeat the names of the seventy souls of Israel who descended into Egypt when their names were already mentioned earlier in the book of Genesis? Torah has come to teach us a deep and essential lesson in self-knowledge.:“

Shabbat Shalom
