חַג הַמַּצּוֹת – Chag Matzot – The Festival of Unleavened Bread

April 22, 2022

13:17-15:26

Chag Matzot Sameach – Happy Unleavened Bread Holiday!

Ro’eh Richard provides a special teaching on the Festival of Unleavened Bread from Exodus 13:17-15:26 which reads, “And it came to be, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that Elohim did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, though that was nearer, for Elohim said, ‘Lest the people regret when they see fighting, and return to Mitsrayim.’ ”

In the teaching today, Ro’eh Richard teaches that our mussar (character trait) is “Bitachon” (absolute trust and reassurance). The teaching focuses on Exodus 15:22-26, with specificity to the Hebrew word “nisy“ which means “plucked out, pull out, and to break up from an encampment.” The Israelites were camped at the bitter waters of Marah and many people died there as a result of their own bitterness. Before they moved on from there, Hashem gave them statutes and rules. The great sage Rambam said that these rules were given in order that the Jewish people learn to pray for their needs without grumbling and to get along with each other during their journey through the wilderness. Hashem’s people need to be One as a nation in order to bring His light to the rest of the world.
