“B’shalach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the story of one of the most famous miracles in the whole Book — the parting of the “red sea” (or Sea of Reeds, take your pick). Perhaps more importantly, there’s a WHOLE lot more to this story, that begins at the end of the plagues, and really kicks off the genuine “exodus”. (Parsha “B’shalach,” Exodus 13:17 through chapter 17)

These teachings are available live each week via Paltalk, in the “Walking Torah with Shabbat Shalom Mesa” room (interactively, via and also simulcast at

“B’ha’alotecha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes another two-part look at parsha “B’ha’alotecha” (Numbers chapters 8 through 12).  Again, it looks like another “potpourri” of perhaps disparate topics, in spite of the fact that it ALSO clearly contains another major “turning point” in the Story.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark outlines several of the themes, and why they remain “timeless”.

But it’s during the Sabbath Day teaching, where it’s time for some spiritualizin‘ — and even a bit of speculation.”  If we see a ‘turning point’ in this story of Whining in the Desert, isn’t it about time we became “teachable” ourselves?  (Moses certainly was, as we shall see.)

“Food – Control – Trust – and Vulnerability:
…Time for a Turning Point”

Are we “Goin’ out, or comin’ IN?” One thing is for sure, though, the ‘human condition’ hasn’t changed, and arguably YHVH will STILL have “war with Amalek,” throughout even our generations. And THAT is a key to where we are, too.
