Rabbi Charles Savenor looks at a hidden name of Moshe Rabbeinu’s grandson in the Torah and argues that our tradition’s erasure of this family legacy on account of fear and shame is a missed opportunity for growth and insight.

Rabbi Charles E. Savenor is the Director of Congregational Education at Park Avenue Synagogue. He is currently writing a memoir entitled “What My Father Couldn’t Tell Me.”
