Did you ever notice in the Torah that there are so many different names of G-d? In the first two verses of this week’s Torah portion, the Torah uses THREE different names of G-d. What’s going on here? Why does G-d have so many names and why are each of them used specifically here?

Join Rabbi Moshe on this episode and you’ll also gain a deeper understanding of G-d’s rebuke to Moses, the concept of Ma’aseh avos siman libonim (what occurred to our forefathers foreshadows what will happen to their descendants) and the forefather’s role in the Jewish nation.

Feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, sponsorship opportunities or future topic requests, and I’ll try my best to respond to everyone’s emails: [email protected]
