Description

From the Sea to Sinai. Tests of the Wilderness

Why did the Israelites complain so bitterly when they were in the Wilderness?  Did they doubt God?
If God could split a sea, then why did He fail to provide their basic commodities like water and food? Was it all part of God’s plan?

Rabbi Alex Israel explores how God designed the Israelites’ journey through the wilderness as a test and a transformative learning experience.

50-60 min of lecture followed by a brief Q&A.
