Moses' Parents

Moses' Parents

E-mail

Levi's grandson, Amram, the son of Kehat, married Yocheved, and she bore him three children.

Their first child was a girl by the name of Miriam, who was later to become a great prophetess of the Jewish people.

The second child was Aaron, the highest priest of G-d, famous for his extraordinary love of peace. Next to his brother Moses, he was the greatest leader of our nation in his time.

It was Amram's youngest son Moses who was destined to lead the children of Israel from Egypt and to receive for them the Holy Torah on Mount Sinai.
