In parsha Va'era, it is a remarkable scene in ancient Egypt. Moses and Aaron standing before Pharaoh in his court. The brothers are there to redeem the Jewish people and they know their opponent will not bend easily. The plagues will soon follow, but for the moment it is just Moses and Aaron alone with Pharaoh in the palace of the king. It is this moment when Moses and Aaron throw their staffs to the ground and issue their challenge to Egypt. This week, our Shabbat meal begins with its own symbol to recall that historic summit. We start with handmade Herbed Focaccia – Italian bread that present a challenge to anyone at your table. How can you possibly resist this delicious treat?
