Antony Lishak via his organization ‘Learning from the Righteous’ will be commemorating Irena Sendler throughout 2018. He spoke to Eve at Limmud UK where he presented a session on this non Jewish woman who coordinated the rescue of hundreds of Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust at great risk to herself and others in the Resistance. What lessons can be learned from her altruism; what terrible choices were made by parents, to physically save their children but know they would be lost to their faith. Without historical context no one should judge, and may this episode in history never repeat itself.

God could make Redemption come about by Himself if He wanted to – He can do anything! But God wants mankind to choose Redemption, to want it themselves. Rabbi Mike joins Rabbi Yishai to usher in the Book of Exodus, and the first great redeemer – Moses!
