Judaism: The Temple Institute on Vaera: Moses' Humanity
Rabbi Chaim RichmanRabbi Chaim Richman is the Director of the International Department of The Temple Institute in Jerusalem.
The Torah takes great pains to emphasize Moshe's humanity in this week's Torah reading.
Yes, the great savior of Israel, the man who would speak with G-d face to face, was just that - a man, mortal and fallible like the rest of us.
Everything is going to change, G-d says, even your perception of My name.
And the Redemption is about to begin.
