Weekly Youth Blast


It is the mission of Congregation Agudath Sholom Youth Department to provide innovative religious and recreational activities for infants through senior teens, which infuse core Torah values and a general menschlichkeit into the daily lives of our youth.


Parsha Pointers
  • After Pharaoh lets the Jews out of Egypt, he changes his mind and chases after them.

  • Now, in front of the Jews is the sea, and behind them is Pharaoh with  hundreds of soldiers. 

  • Hashem tells Moshe to take his stick and stretch it over the sea. Moshe does, and an amazing miracle happens, the sea splits!

  • The Egyptians follow the Jews into the sea, but the sea starts to flow again and closes in on them. 

  • When the Jews cross safely to the other side, they sing a song of thanks to Hashem. 

  • The Jews are in the desert, and are worried that they will not have food to eat. 

  • Hashem sends quail for them to have meat, and every morning, a special food called Mann falls to the ground. 

  • The Jews collect one portion of Mann every day, but on Friday there is a double portion for Shabbat.

  • Moshe hits a rock and it becomes a fountain, giving the Jews water.

  • A nation called Amalek comes and attacks the Jews. 

  • Moshe sends Yehoshua to gather an army from the Jews and go fight them. 

  • Yehoshua does this, and they win against the Amalekites. 

  • Hashem is very angry, and promises to never forget what Amalek did to the Jews, that they were the first ones to attack them in the desert.
