DeflateGate the other Side of the Coin

Patriots.jpgEven though I recently became an American, I have not yet caught up and not sure that I ever will catch up with the thrill of American Football. With that said, Boston is blessed with many great sports teams and it is always a treat to see so many people revved up and excited when one of our teams are doing well in their respective leagues. Occasionally we even get asked to make a Misheberach and a special prayer for one of our team’s successes, but even better than that are the smiles and excitement that is so abundant during those times.

Defying Evil

Mommy and MeImagine a tyrannical dictator instructs you do a terrible act or you will pay with your life. How would you react? Would you cave or would you stand strong? Would you oppose? How is one meant to even deal with such evil?

For two characters in this week's Torah Portion, this was the exact reality of what they faced. Shifra and Puah otherwise known as Yocheved and Miriam, were the lead Jewish midwives during Biblical times in Egypt and they were faced with this exact dilemma. Pharaoh the king in Egypt, woke up one morning and decided on a campaign of hate and violence against the Jews. He was actually a very smart person and the Midrash tell us that he knew that if he embarked on a wholesale massacre of the Jews, even his own people… Read More »
