ONE PERSON MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Moshe Rabbeinu ztk"l
Born the 7th of Adar of the year 2368 from creation (1393 BCE)
He led the Jewish nation out of Egypt in the year 2448, when he was eighty years old.
In that same year, the Jewish people received the Torah through Moshe Rabbeinu at Sinai.
The Torah teaches that Moshe Rabbeinu was both the greatest prophet in history (Devarim 34:10) and the most humble person in history (Bemidbar 12:3).
Moshe was the one to confront Pharaoh and deliver the warnings of the Ten Plagues.
At Hashem’s command, he miraculously split the Yam Suf (the Reed Sea) on the seventh day after the Exodus. The miracle food, mann, fell in his merit the entire forty years that Moshe led the Jewish people in the desert. Moshe went up Mount Sinai to accept the Torah on our behalf, on Shabbos, the sixth day of Sivan, in the year 2448.
Moshe taught us the entire Torah and led the nation for forty years in the desert until he passed away at the age of 120, in the year 2488. The Revelation at Sinai was the most dramatic scene in the annals of world history. All Jews witnessed Hashem’s presence on the mountaintop and heard Him teaching us the Ten Commandments.
