Afraid to Face God?

Parshat Yitro (Exodus 18:1-20:23)

Many Jews who live their lives in a traditional Jewish way will often punctuate their remarks with the term, "Baruch Hashem," which means "Blessed be Hashem." The words are used as a response to so many situations, both good and bad. It is a way of recognizing that the power and presence of God is manifest in all moments of the human experience.
