What We Discussed: Va’eira

Posted on January 3, 2022

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: When We Choose to Make Life Harder.

On Saturday, we discussed Pharaoh and his sorcerers. There are four examples of them working their magic – when Aaron turned his staff into a snake and the first three plagues. Their magic seems to be less and less effective in each instance. We discussed why they were successful and not successful, as well as what made Pharaoh change his mind and decide his sorcerers were not equivalent to God.

What do you think? Here is a link to the Source Sheet.

Shavua Tov!
