Parshas Yisro - Rational vs Suprarational Education

In order to marry Tzipporah, Moshe Rabbeinu makes a deal with Yisro to give his first born child to Avodah Zara. How couold Moshe have done this? Are we not obligated to give our lives in order to avoid serving idols? Not only does this go against the Torah but it is against the Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach as well! In this shiur, Rav Burg explains two methods of raising our children: Rational - exposing our children to everything and showing them the logical truth of Judaism vs Suprarational - raising our children to believe that there is a truth that transcends logic, a truth that goes beyond our rational minds.
