Torah Study with Rabbi Ruthie
Saturday morning January 25th, 10:00am
Home of Sandy and John Lehr, Frisco

We will read and discuss this week’s Torah portion, Vaera (Exodus chapter 6:2-9:35). In this parsha, God tells Moses and Aaron to go to Pharaoh to demand freedom for the Israelites. Pharaoh refuses, and God unleashes plagues on the Egyptians. Pharaoh promises to free the Israelites, but God hardens Pharaoh’s heart. The portion ends with the plague of hail stopping and Pharaoh changing his mind once again.

Please join us for coffee, bagels and discussion.
