Happy birthday Rabbi Nachman-
THE "MOST EXPENSIVE MISTAKES" IN HISTORY
With awesome power come awesome responsibility.
The consequence of Abraham saying "how will I know" were 400 years in Egypt.
The consequence of Moses saying "I am of uncircumcised lips" and requesting another speaker cost us two temples and 2000 years of exile including the existence of Amalek.
The consequence of Esther saying another day like today instead of make Mordecai King is the Nuremburg Trials.
I think Moses proved that he WAS of circumcised lips since he carried the bones of Josef out of Egypt til age 120, however he had to rely on Yehoshua to chose 10 men to finish the job.
TODAY IS RABBI NACHMAN's birthday, and the birthday of a young man from the village of Ebay Ha Nachal who gets to ride my horse (before I knew he shared his birthday with the holiest of all sons of man).
Indeed Moses was of uncircumcised lips when he grew up in the house of pharaoh, but he also learned to keep his word as did Yehoshua that also grew up in the house of Pharaoh. Rabbi Nachman is giving us the opportunity to complete his and our mission.
As a birthday gift are you ready to make a promise to volunteer time or money to bring Rabbi Nachman to Mt. Zion?
Please put your comment here, since even THAT is a gift to Rabbi Nachman.
