Yitro: Chapter 2

"And her two sons"


Three of the rabbis are wondering why the title verse says "her sons" instead of 'the sons of Moses.' Their puzzlement is cleared up by Rabbi Shimon, who tells them that the sons referred to belong to Jethro, not Moses, and that Jethro brought his whole family that they might enter under the wings of the Shechinah, who was joined celestially with Moses.
