By the splitting of the Sea of Reeds, the Jewish people found themselves between a rock and a hard place - the encroaching Egyptian army to one side and the waters below to the other. Nachshon ben Aminadav (one of the least known Jewish heroes) dove into the sea, forging ahead until its waters reached up to his neck.

Then the sea split.

In life, don’t wait for your sea to split. Dive in. Then it will.

Wishing you an uplifting Shabbat!

Rabbi Mendy & Mussy

p.s. As always, we would love to chat with you over coffee or drinks, about Judaism, or just life - reply to this email.
