Lesson Description

Va’era provides a fresh recognition that the gateway to change is marked by an understanding of the pain of bondage that presses us to find a path toward freedom. With the help of the lessons of this portion and our willingness for serious self-examination, Eitan re-awakens that gateway, so our consciousness can embark with greater confidence toward a brighter future.
