This week we began the second of the five books of the Torah, Shmos!  The children were excited to get reacquainted with the story of Pesach.  In Shmos, we learn about the Jewish people multiplying incredibly! This made Pharoah very worried, and so the Jewish people were tricked into becoming slaves.  Oh no! It was terrible to be a slave. A slave is not ever allowed to make their own choices. We learned about the birth of Moshe, his escape from Egypt, and the wondrous burning bush.  The parsha ends with Moshe and his brother Aron going to King Pharaoh and asking him to let the Jewish people go. Pharaoh refused. More adventures await us next week.

 

Shabbat Shalom!
