1. The beginning of the parasha indicates that when Yitro came to visit Moshe he brought Tzippora (Moshe's wife) with him. The implication being, of course, that Tzippora and Moshe's two sons, were not part of the Exodus, as Moshe had left them in Midian. How can a leader balance the needs of the family with the needs of a nation? Is it necessary that the children of public figures resent their parent's involvement?

  2. In the Ten Commandments, God is described as a "jealous" God, yet later the Torah instructs us to stay away from jealousy. Is jealousy ever justified, and if so, under what conditions and for whom?
