Description

Welcome to a new season of One on One!

In the coming months, we will be releasing a 30-minute conversation on each week’s parsha. Each week a new guest will converse with our host, Dr. Yosefa (Fogel) Wruble about a figure–ancient, pre-modern, contemporary–who has written an idea that sheds new light on our weekly portions.

In this fascinating conversation between Dr. Yosefa (Fogel) Wruble and seasoned Matan tour guide Shulie Mishkin, they discuss some significant messages of the Exodus story only understandable in light of ancient Egyptian culture. R. Moshe David Cassuto is the figure showcased in the episode.

Show Notes:
