problem solving and The Hebrew ancestors departed the narrow places that enslaved them and began a long journey towards freedom. In the beginning of that journey, they were faced with an ultimate test of faith and courage: The Egyptian Army was catching up to them and they had just reached the Red Sea. Would they cross in pursuit of freedom and risk drowning? Legend has it that Nachshon, prince of the tribe of Judah, leaped into the water and almost drowned before the sea split open for the Hebrews. This Passover we invite you to the nachshon or wellspring of faith inside of you to move closer to the freedoms for which you yearn.
