This week’s Torah reading, Shemos, begins with the verse, These are the names of the children of Israel coming into Egypt, Mitzrayim. Rabbi Yehoshua Rokeach, the second Belzer Rebbe points out that the verse says “coming,” in the present tense, rather than “who came,” in the past tense in order to teach us valuable lesson. Throughout the duration of the 210-year exile of the Jews in Egypt, the Jews always felt as if they had just arrived in that land. Why? Rabbi Aharon Schmidt, shaliach of the Rebbe in Beit Shemesh (Israel), finds the answer.
