In every generation, the Zohar says, the soul of Moses extends itself into the teachers and leaders of the Jewish people.

What is the job of Moses?

To be a shepherd of faith. To nurture his flock with faith.

But the Jewish people are a people of innate faith, heirs to great men and women of faith all the way back to Abraham.

So the job of Moses in every generation is not to feed them faith, but to ensure they digest the faith they already have.

To bring the wisdom of their souls into their minds, their hearts, and their everyday actions.

Until every cell of a Jew is saturated with the deepest wisdom of the soul.
