10 - Va'eira - Hashem's Hand & His Word- 3rd Aliyah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
Throughout the story of Yetzias Mitzrayim, Hashem says that He will strike His hand against Mitzrayim through signs and miracles, so that both Mitzrayim and the Jewish people will recognize Hashem. The 10 makkos (plagues), displaying Hashem's hand against Mitzrayim, relate to the 10 ma'amaros, the statements that Hashem made to bring the world into being. The 10 makkos give a chance for the 10 statements of Hashem to be heard once again, as Bnei Yisroel make the transition from relating to Hashem's hand to the elevated level of conversation with Him when they received the Torah.
10 - Yisro - Torah as The Tree of Life
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
In Parshas Yisro, we read about Matan Torah. This experience enabled the Jewish People to see what is usually heard, and hear what is usually seen. Chazal tell us that what Bnei Yisroel experienced there was the same as Adam Harishont before the first sin. We know that Torah is described as the Etz Hachaim, the tree of life, which is the antidote of the Etz Hada'as, the tree of knowledge. Through learning Torah and connecting to the spirituality in life, we minimize the physical obstructions that were brought about by the original sin.
11 - Bo - The Gold & Silver of our Egyptian Friends- 3rd Aliyah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
In the third aliyah (section) of Parshas Bo¸ Hashem tells Moshe to request that the Jewish people ask their Egyptian friends for silver and gold utensils in order to keep His promise to Avraham that Bnei Yisroel will leave Mitzrayim with great wealth. It is not enough that they would later receive tremendous spoils on the shores of the Yam Suf, rather, they received vessels from the Egyptians because they respected and admired the Jewish people at this point. Hashem did not want Bnei Yisroel to leave as lowly slaves, but rather as people of stature, esteemed in the eyes of the Egyptians.
11 - Mishpatim - Soulfood
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
12 - Beshalach - Shira, Geulah, & Tefillah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
Often we are driven to daven to Hashem for our physical needs, such as health, parnassah, and success. The shira of the Jewish People after crossing the Yam Suf teaches us that the first step of a tefillah is recognizing to Whom you are praying. Before crossing the Yam Suf, it seems that Hashem is cutting short their tefillah, their cry for help. After experiencing this incredible miracle, the Jewish People recognize Hashem as their G-d, the One Who has redeemed them from the terrible slavery in Mitzrayim, and are able to daven to Him from that state instead.
12 - Bo - Appreciation and Yetzias Mitzrayim
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
12 - Bo - Mastering Time- 4th Aliyah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
In the fourth aliyah (section) of Parshas Bo¸ Makkas Bechoros (the plague of the firstborn) is introduced to Pharaoh as the ultimate makkah which will lead the Jewish people out of Mitzrayim. The first mitzvah, Kiddush HaChodesh (sanctifying the month), is also included in this aliyah. Both of these matters are significant in the process of Yetzias Mitzrayim, when the Jewish people are singled out as Hashem's chosen nation, taken above the limitations of nature and made into His partner.
13 - Mishpatim - Hashem's Concern for Justice- Third Aliyah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
In the 3rd aliyah (section) of Parshas Mishpatim, many interpersonal laws are discussed, and Hashem promises that He will listen to those who are oppressed. The giving of the Torah is surrounded by these mishpatim (laws), indicating their significance. The way that we care for each other is of paramount importance, as Hashem does not want a dynamic is which one person is taking advantage of another. Hashem Himself is so great, but concerns Himself with the every individual, and we must do the same, expressing our care and concern for each person.
13 - Mishpatim - The Sefer HaBris
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
Prior to Bnei Yisroel's famous words of Naaseh V'nishmah (we will do and we will hear), Moshe reads the Sefer Habris. There are many explanations of what comprises this Book of the Covenant, and what solidifies this bond between us and Hashem. Different approaches explain the Sefer Habris to be a book of mitzvos, the study of Torah to deepen connection, the exclusivity of the connection that we have with Hashem, and the knowledge that Hashem is bound together with us through our ups and downs. The last interpretation explains the ultimate bris--the close connection and intertwined relationship that is our covenant with Hashem.

13 - Va'eira - Moshe and Aharon: Lineage & Leadership- 2nd Aliyah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
In the second aliyah (section) of Parshas Va'eira, the lineage of Moshe and Aharon is discussed in detail, with different distinguished members of Levi's family mentioned. While exploring who is mentioned and who is left out, we glean important lessons about the roles of Moshe and Aharon, both as a team, in their positions as leaders, and their individual roles- Moshe, as giver of the Torah, and Aharon, as the Kohen.
13 - Yisro - Appointment of Judges- 3rd Aliyah
by Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
In the third aliyah (section) of Parshas Yisro, Moshe carries out Yisro's advice of appointing judges. Although this was very practical advice, it created a distance between Bnei Yisroel and Moshe. There is a higher level of understanding and acceptance as a result of seeing, rather than just hearing. Yisro merely heard about what Hashem did for Bnei Yisroel, and although he recognized Hashem, he did not come to the same level of understanding and acceptance as Bnei Yisroel, who saw Hashem at Krias Yam Suf and Matan Torah.
