Description

The text interrupts the narrative of the Exodus to highlight Moshe's taking Yosef's bones up from Egypt, per the oath that was administered by Yosef to his brothers at his deathbed. We explore both the explicit mention as well as the unusual placement of this note in the text by looking at other actions that Moshe took that seem to foreshadow the redemptive process. A closer look suggests that he may have been doing more than merely prefacing the redemption - he may have become an active agent to spur God's involvement in the redemptive process. The roots of this role may be found in the narrative surrounding Moshe's own salvation at the sea, as we discuss at the end of the shiur. The shiur was given in memory of טוביה בן יואל צבי הלוי ז"ל
