Donna Gray

Break out groups can only happen on Zoom. How many can get onto Zoom? I thought it was going to be livestreamed on FB.

Darina Ivanova

I wondered whether Donna's concern was actually about how many people can technically attend a Zoom meeting, in case there are too many candidates.
Sharon Sonnenschein
30:02
What about Israel independence day
sasha
31:52
Donna is your question about the zoom seder? if so can we address at the end?

depending on the plan, zoom can be 100 to 1000 people
Laurie Krotman
37:03
?To differentiate between northern & southern?
Sarah Siegel
37:32
The parting
Sarah Siegel
39:09
Sounds like an avalanche to me(!)
Sharon Sonnenschein
39:19
Israel is Jacob and Judah is is main son

Or a volcanu
Yael

eleanor
40:59
ein gedi
Harold Levine
41:17
Sara, we generally sing it together in services, led by the cantor.
Sharon Sonnenschein
42:14
The rams are the shofar sounds on mount Sinai
Sheldon Wertman
42:24
Totally, years apart, maybe 600 years
Max Leader
42:30
This one feels like a psalm pure celebration
lisebrown
42:46
Israel is to G-d as Judah is to Jacob
Sarah Siegel
43:08
No, the mountains skipping sounds like an avalanche.
Megan Cossey
43:10
Compared to psalms 1 and 2 no one is falling short in this one!
Sara's iPad
43:11
this psalm sounds like nature
Sharon Sonnenschein
43:22
Hills are the ones we climb up on the pilgrim festivals like Passover
Harold Levine
44:19
The narrator doesn’t seem to be addressing God here. It seems more like a historical narrative, or a magical realistic tale.
Laurie Krotman
44:40
Berliner & Brettler "The Jewish Study Bible": "The language suggests that this is a late psalm and is commemorating the new exodus namely the return from Babylonian exile"
Harold Levine
44:45
Moses is supposedly an Egyptian name.
Sharon Sonnenschein
44:46
There is a midrash that the Israelites kept their own speech even in exile
Karen Krop
45:20
the way we usually sing it, our melody change after v4 when we go from exclaiming about it to asking why
Sarah Siegel
45:59
Or maybe, the psalm is saying that nature was a partner in the Israelite’s escape from Egypt. A helpful and then celebratory partner — helpful Red Sea-parting and celebratory mountains and hills (notwithstanding my impression of it sounding like an avalanche).
Sarah Siegel
46:49
…Sharon, like modern Eastern European Jews and Yiddish.
Sharon Sonnenschein
47:24
There is some evidence that the tribes were not completely split and some people from the ten tribes returned with the tribe of Judah
noreendeandresser
47:42
I was thinking from a mountain viewpoint an avalanche may be joyous
Katherine Katsanis-Semel

Harold Levine

Each of us has a namegiven by Godand given by our parentsEach of us has a namegiven by our stature and our smileand given by what we wearEach of us has a namegiven by the mountainsand given by our wallsEach of us has a namegiven by the starsand given by our neighborsEach of us has a namegiven by our sinsand given by our longingEach of us has a namegiven by our enemiesand given by our loveEach of us has a namegiven by our celebrationsand given by our workEach of us has a namegiven by the seasonsand given by our blindnessEach of us has a namegiven by the seaand given byour death.
Harold Levine

Please raise your hands if you wish to talk. We get a lot feed back if you aren't muted. Thank you so much.
Jacob Niemi

A little off-topic at this point, but I wanted to share a note about the b'rachot for Hallel that I forgot to mention earlier. I was under the impression that for scripture to become liturgy, it is typically bound by b'rachot, e.g. Sh'ma Uvirchoteha, P'sukei D'zimrah, Hallel, the study texts in Birchot Hashachar, the biblical quotes in the shofar service on Rosh Hashanah, and public Torah/Haftarah reading. Kabbalat Shabbat is an outstanding exception (which is why some modern orthodox and other slightly more progressive traditional prayer groups that don't allow women to lead Ma'ariv might allow them to lead Kabbalat Shabbat).

why not Abraham ?
Sarah Siegel

A moment of LGBT+ humor? House of Jacob - could be featured in the marvelous TV show, “Pose.” :-)
Hilary Nudell
51:32
growth mindset
Sarah Siegel
52:34
And seriously, I love Rabbi Kleinbaum’s idea that all proto-Jews got out, whether their highest selves or not.
sasha
54:13
me too, Sarah, it is so powerful and hopeful.
Megan Cossey
56:31
Also no individuals (humans, kings, sinners etc) in this psalm versus psalms 1 and 2. And no one falling short in this psalm, unlike psalms 1 and 2
Sarah Siegel
57:29
More questions: Who is Pharaoh today in this age of the COVID-19 plague? Who are the Israelites? What is the Red Sea? What are the mountains and hills?
Peter Klein
59:15
You are quite right, Sarah. each generation will frame this narrative in the context of their immediate experience.
Marilyn Greenberg
59:51
my translation says "Before the Master Earth becomes receptive"
Ellen Poster
01:00:39
the pause seems to be in the middle of the word aretz; so why is it in the pause form - it is not before the pause?
Katherine Katsanis-Semel
01:01:48
True, Rabbi! Amen. 🙏💕🙏
lisebrown
01:01:53
