Summary of Today's Chumash
In the first aliyah, Yisro, Moshe's father-in-law, having heard all about what G-d did for Moshe and the Jews, comes to them in the desert bringing with him Moshe's wife and two sons. Moshe and all the leaders of the Jews go to meet Yisro. (From this we learn how to respect fathers'-in-law.) Moshe tells Yisro all about their being delivered out of Egypt, the splitting of the sea of reeds, the manna, the water, and the war with Amalak. Yisro responds using the phrase: "Boruch Hashem" (Blessed be G-d).
