Rav's Message

Parshas Yisro is arguably one of the most central Parshiyos in the Torah, focusing as it does on the spectacular event of the revelation of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Interestingly, it is also one of the shorter Parshiyos, "clocking in" at a "mere" 72 verses.

The message, I think, is that length is not necessarily a sign of profundity. It is possible, and perhpas even desirable, to convey spectcular ideas with brevity.

Heeding my own advice, I will sign off.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
