THERE WERE only two children present at the Shabbat service of Chabad of Rehavia last Saturday.

“Betzem Hayom Hazeh Yatzu Kol Tzivos Hashem …” The Maamar of this week’s Parsha discusses the verse that describes the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt. The verse states that “On the essence of this day all the Tzivos Hashem left Mitzrayim”. Who were the “Tzivos Hashem” that left Egypt?
