Was it possible for a Jewish woman to bear 60 children at once? Why does the Torah say that the exile in Egypt will last 400 years, but only lasts for 210?

We will answer these questions in this week's Living Torah study as we examine the Parashah of Shemot.

We see in this week’s Parashah that the Almighty One reveals Himself to Moses as יהוה. One of the major reasons is because The Name was responsible for the creation of the world. With the Patriarchs, He sustained them through natural means, none of which was in direct contravention to the natural laws of the universe. In other words, the miracles wrought were not of a supernatural quality. The events surrounding the Exodus would need to be of supernatural quality. Therefore the Almighty One revealed this Name to the Children of Israel as a prelude to this supernatural redemption.
We just received this from Amazon Smile:

We are writing to let you know that we have made plans to wind down AmazonSmile by February 20, 2023. Until this date, customer purchases made via AmazonSmile will continue to accrue funds for your charity as normal. To help nonprofits like you plan ahead, we will also provide you with a one-time payment equivalent to three months of payments based on what you accrued in 2022 through this program. The timing of this final payment will be approximately 60 to 90 days after February 20, 2023. We hope that this will help minimize the impact that this decision might have.

I wanted to share this with everyone:

Good morning Rabbi,
This is to thank you for all you are doing for us, our Tribe.
The website is awesome!!! Your services often bring tears to my eyes. Through you I am gaining insight to myself, the world and Torah.
I have gained tremendously mentally, physically and I know the financial blessings aren't far off. I am inclined to write my book. In it I shall mention your name, and how I could barely walk even with a walker. But now I go from one end of my apt. To the other end, Go to the bathroom, wash dishes and cook some meals using my walker.
I was literally stuck and couldn't, or could barely walk.
Amazing.
There is so much more to tell but in another time. You will be amazed.
Much love and light to you and your spouse.
God Bless.
If you would like to post this letter on your website or some other place, you have my permission.

Adefina Serves 4 to 6
Adefina, adafina, dafina, aní, hamín, caliente, trasnochado. All these names refer to one thing: the quintessential Shabbat dish of the Sephardic Jews of the 15th century. It was commonly known under different names, and this would have been one way Jews were able to deceive Inquisition officials, as this dish would have revealed the makers and eaters as Jewish. All terms refer to the characteristics of the dish: adefina, adafina, dafina mean “buried, hidden.” Aní, hamín, caliente refer to the fact that the dish is “hot.” And trasnochado refers to the fact that it is cooked “overnight.”

Out of respect for the history of this recipe, the method presented here does not contain New World ingredients—like potatoes and sweet potatoes—that are now frequently used by Sephardim to prepare Adefina.

1/2 pound beef brisket, bone in, or lamb neck 2 tablespoons sugar Water (to cover the meat) 1 onion 1/3 cup olive oil 2 bay leaves 1 tablespoon salt 1 whole head garlic 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 1 cup dried chickpeas (soaked in water for 24 hours) 6 eggs, left in their shell 10 dates 1 cup Swiss chard, boiled 10 mint leaves

FOR THE FRIED RICE 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup rice 1 clove garlic, chopped 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 2 saffron strands
Muslin (cooks note: several layers of cheesecloth may substitute for muslin)
Add the meat (bone in) to a large ovenproof pot along with the sugar. Brown for 5 minutes over high heat on the stove. Add water just to cover the meat and bring to a boil; boil for 10 minutes. Skim off and discard the layer of fat that forms over the water.

In the same water, add the whole onion, olive oil, bay leaves, salt, the whole head of garlic, cinnamon, black pepper, nutmeg and turmeric, without overlapping if possible. Next, add the chickpeas, whole eggs in their shells, dates, Swiss chard and mint leaves.

Meanwhile, make the fried rice separately: Take a frying pan and add the olive oil, rice, garlic, salt, turmeric and saffron. Brown for 5 minutes over low to medium heat. Let the rice cool, then place it in the muslin and tie it up. Add the muslin to the pot with the meat.

Add additional water to cover all ingredients. Cover the pot and place it in a 200°-oven in the late afternoon. The adefina will be ready the next day in the late morning.

If desired, you can serve the different ingredients from the pot (rice, eggs, vegetables, broth, meat) in separate dishes.

Notes:
• Many hidden Jews were informed on to Inquisition officials by their servants, who became suspicious on Friday evenings when they were sent out of the house when it was time to prepare Adefina. There were many versions of this dish documented in Inquisition trial records throughout the 15th century. All have some variation of these ingredients and are cooked overnight for Shabbat.
• Andrés Bernáldez (1415 to 1513) mentioned the term “adefina” in relation to the culinary practices of the Jews. In Memoirs of the Reign of the Catholic Monarchs (written in the 15th century), he wrote that Adefina was “a pot-au-feu (puchero) or pot (olla) that the Jews place at nightfall on a stove covering it with embers, for eating on Saturdays.” Various Spanish literary works testify to the preparation and consumption of Adefina between the 14th and 16th centuries.
