In the journey of life we often encounter forks in the road and wrestle with which path to take. Sometimes we reach a dead end and can see no way forward, yet going back is impossible. In Parshat B’shalach the Children of Israel are confronted with this frightening dilemma. They have fled Egypt and are now stuck between the raging sea and the approaching Egyptian army. In a remarkable act of faith one man, Nachshon, takes a step forward into the abyss, and with that act a new path opens up before them. The sea splits and freedom awaits. Rev Martin Luther King Jr said “faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Gersh Zylberman
