Parsha Talk – Last days of Pesach 5781

Parashah Talk, the Pesach Edition, with Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Jeremy Kalmanofsky and Barry Chesler. This Shabbat is the 7th day of Passover, when we read the beginning of Parashat B’shallach [Exodus 13:17-15:27, last read on January 30], featuring the Song of the Sea [Exodus 15:1-21]. On Sunday, the Torah reading is the same as the 2nd day of Shavuot and Sh’mini Atzeret [Deuteronomy 15:19-16:17]. There is a longstanding tradition to read the Song of Songs on the Shabbat of Pesach [unless Shabbat is both 1st and 8th day, when it is read on the 8th day]. Our discussion focuses first on the Song of the Sea, and then on Song of Songs. Shabbat Shalom & Chag Sameach! (Image
