Get Your Feet Wet- it’s the Exodus! The Israelites are finally free, struggling to leave Egypt behind, but now they find themselves trapped not able to cross the sea. This is the story of what happens next. Rabbi Jonah Pesner breaks down the midrash and introduces us to Nachshon, a leader that walks right into the water with faith.
