Rabbi Marc’s Dash of Drash: Until the Sun Rises

Episode 55 of Dash of Drash, Until the Sun Rises, is dedicated to Koby Gruenwald. With the devastating, untimely death of 13-year-old Koby, the son of Rabbi Salomon and Melanie Gruenwald, the stories of exodus, redemption, salvation and miracles all seem so obscure and the questions that arise are different and challenging. It is more about taking the gentle next steps than it is about finding meaning. Through the lens of the stories of Parshat Beshallach (Exodus 13;17-17:16), this episode is dedicated to the memory of Koby.
