Parashat VaEra, and No Words

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

     This week’s Torah portion, “Parashat Vaera / פָּרָשַׁתוָאֵרָא, is the 14th weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.   The entire Torah Portion is:Exodus 6:2-9:35

Parashat Vaera tells of the first seven Plagues of Egypt.”

     Dare I mention that there are some who make an interesting argument that many of these phenomena could be explained as part of the aftermath of the explosion of Santorini (or what became Santorini, after half of the initial island of Thera was blown away)?

   In any case, I’m with the One doing the rebuking: How can the angels rejoice at the deaths of their fellow creations?   Or am I getting a bit ahead of myself?

  How can we make the future more certain and safe for all of us?

   What do you think,   Thoughtful Readers?
