With this episode of Torah on Location, we are going to have a look at Exodus 14:21-22. This is the story of the Hebrew Nation crossing the Red Sea. The biblical narrative tells us that a “STRONG EAST WIND” blew across the waters and caused the waters to split wide open, leaving a “wall” of water on their right and on the left, as they were crossing on dry land. What is this “Strong East Wind”? We will have a look at this and also have a look into some additional nuances of the Hebrew text to help us shed some additional light on this all important subject that is at the core of the Passover teaching.
