In Parshat Beshalach (Exodus 13:17–17:16) we're introduced to a nation of whiners and complainers. After years of slavery, the Israelites are finally a free nation! The next thing we should be reading is a love story between God and His people. But the honeymoon phase ends before it even begins.

In this video, we explore what the Israelites really complained about, and how complaining impacted their relationship with God – but not in the way you think.
