The newly emancipated Hebrew slaves flee Egypt while Pharaoh and his army follow close behind. Arriving at the Red Sea, the Israelites face a choice. Turn back? Go forward? Moses raises his staff and the waters split in two. According to our Midrash, all the waters in the world divided. In jars, cups, bowls and the heavenly waters, as well. For our Shabbat menu this week, it is only fitting to start our meal with a Souped Up Split Pea Soup.
