Water Is Life

by Rabbi Katy Z. Allen

In this week's Torah portion, Beshalach, the sea parts to let the Israelites pass through to the other side. The deep, impassable sea, one more in a series of seemingly impossible obstacles to freedom, suddenly opens to allow for passage out of bondage and into freedom. 

In honor of hope of seas parting and of the Water Protectors, who are working so hard and being so terribly treated, I offer this meditation on water to help you find strength as you go through your days.
