What's in a name? We are getting into the Book of Exodus, known in Hebrew as Shemot, The Book of Names. In this week's Torah portion, Va'era, God appears to the Hebrew slaves in Egypt with a new name, a new manifestation in the world. This new, divine name is what will carry the Israelites into freedom.
