This week Rabbi Yitzchak and William look at two very interesting verses in the book of Exodus related to the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire. Early on in chapter 13 we see that Hashem goes before the children of Israel in the pillar of cloud, however, in chapter 14 we see that the angel of Elokim is now moving from before the children of Israel in the pillar of cloud to behind the camp. The pillar of fire also moves and now these two pillars separate the camp of Israel from the camp of Egypt after the Egyptians change their minds and come after the children of Israel. Listen to the very interesting discussion from commentaries of the sages to bring light to these verses.
