Parsha Blog: Yitro

by Larry Kligman, Head of School Feb 02, 2015 Abraham Joshua Heschel School, Northridge, California
The name Jethro (Yitro in Hebrew) refers to Moses’ father in law, the priest of Midian. Tradition has it that, years earlier, Moses had worked for Jethro after marrying Jethro's daughter, Tzipporah. He valued the man and his wisdom. As we begin the parsha, the children of Israel had recently experienced miracles from God: parting of the Red Sea, manna falling from the sky, and bitter water turning sweet after Moses touched the water with his rod.

This week’s parashah depicts the continuation of the 10 plagues and the actual Yetziat Mitzrayim (leaving of Egypt). The emotional richness of the story always strikes me, but as I was reading throughout the parasha this year two major ideas stuck out to me. The first comes in 13:8, commanding the people to tell their children of the work of Hashem. Here we have a clear indication of the importance of education and how essential history is to the Jewish people.
