Parshat Shemot - Bringing Children into a World of Misery
- 54 min 8 sec

According to the Midrash, they almost didn't want to, and we almost did our job for Paroh. Along the way, we also discuss how Paroh thought that his plan to kill Jewish boys would work, when things don't really seem to add up.
