Sunday, January 29th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for another two-part look at this week’s Torah portion, which begins the story of the plagues in Mitzraim (Egypt) and all that it portends.

The Sabbath Day teaching asks more questions than it tries to answer, but the lessons are more important now than ever.
