January 5, 2018

Rabbi Sharon L. Sobel is the rabbi of Temple Beth Am in Framingham, Massachusetts. Her career has extended from leading congregations to leading national organizations. She served as Executive Director of the Union for Reform Judaism’s Canadian Council for Reform Judaism and ARZA Canada for over 9 years. Later, as Judaic Consultant for the York Region of the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, Rabbi Sobel was responsible for developing and enhancing spiritual life in the York region, the fastest growing Jewish population in all of North America.

This week’s Torah Portion – Parashat Shemot (Exodus 1:1-6:1) – features the beginning of the epic story of Moses and the exodus from Egypt. The portion features a description of the oppression of the people of Israel by Pharaoh, the birth of Moses, his flee to Midian and Moses’ return to Egypt. The burning bush is the focus of our conversation.
