Leaving Egypt
צילום: פלאש90

A dramatic statement – but a real one, appears in this week’s Portion: Enough of slavery and dictatorship! This world is not haphazard, it has a purpose, and every person is created in the image of G-d and is meaningful and significant. The following lines, posted yesterday by Dr. Moshe Ratt, sound like an excellent soundtrack for the Exodus of Egypt:

You were not born –
But rather, you were sent into the world.
You will not die –
But rather, you will go back home.
Not by chance –
But rather, as a part of a plan.
Not in order to have fun –
But rather, to build and understand.
Not alone –
But rather, under personal Providence.
Things do not happen to you –
But rather, your path is pre-planned.
You were not messed over –
But rather, you chose by yourself.
You are not a dust speck in the wind –
But rather, for you, the world was created.
