Barak was very astute and applied two important tactics
1. He lead his men down mount Tabor at the crack of dawn so that Sisera soldiers could not see his soldiers as they were Looking into the sun.
2. He only attacked when the brook of water the Rishon brooks started to fill with water so that the chariots would be trapped. Barak had no chariots.
Both tactics worked. Reply

Beshalach weekly portion What I find new to me is that this Deborah wasn't challenged in her prophecies by anyone, man or woman of her time, so she seems to me more like a visionary politician that a prophet. Of course, that war was fought by Hashem and that is a prophetic element, anyhow, I think I'm going to know more about the prophets of the Tanach at the end of the cycle. I am grateful for the Chabad's, and yours, effort for broadcasting this knowledge. Reply
