Post-parting of the Sea of Reeds depression nags the children of Israel.

They question whether G-d is still with them, just days after the greatest miracle in history leaves them giddy with prophecy.

The cure, they learn, is not in the reliving of past heights, but in embracing the day, with all its bitter-sweet reality.
