Dear Leaders,

There is power in numbers. When we work together in unison, we are more than just the sum of our parts. And that is part of the beauty of these gatherings and study groups: learning from each other and joining together to reach higher.

In this week’s Torah portion, G‑d promises to redeem the Jewish people from their crushing enslavement in Egypt. In this study packet, we take a look at how to break free from enslaving behaviors and compulsive habits. What triggers us to keep on doing the same things, over and over, even though we end up in the same negative place each time? Is there something deeper that is feeding our craving? Why do we get pulled into dysfunctional relationships and habits and is there a way to rise above the chaos?

Please share with us your thoughts on what you feel is imprisoning and how someone can break free.

Wishing you a wonderful gathering,

Chana Weisberg,

Editor, TJW
