Listen On


In this conversation with Dr. Ayelet Hoffman Libson, we speak about the parsha’s fascinating oscillation between the nation’s experience of the exodus from Egypt and the laws that institutionalized it for generations.

Our podcast series on Shemot focuses on Identity and Nationality Formation. We’re going to try and address the big biblical themes of slavery, redemption, society building, and commitment to a binding code of law as well as explore together with our guests how we can anchor these big ideas in our modern lives.

This week’s episode is dedicated in memory of Lili Weil, it was around Lili’s dining room table that Rabbanit Malke Bina first taught a Talmud shiur to women, and what provided the inspiration for Matan’s creation. Lili was a woman of grace and kindness, wisdom and good deeds.
