Parshas Mishpatim

This week, we move from the lightning and thunder upon the mountain of Parshas Yisro to the nitty-gritty details of our every-day interactions one with the other of Parshas Mishpatim. Again, as I opined two weeks ago on Parshas Beshallach and last week on Parshas Yisro, it is often nice to find G-d in the moment of experiential “highs”. However, to truly live in relationship to G-d is to accept ol malchut shemaim and to live every moment—high, low, and in between—mindful of HaKadosh Boruch-Hu and acting toward our fellow human beings and toward Him in consonance with that mindfulness as we are instructed in His Torah.
