1) When the Rabbi talks about Dasan and Aviram - they were poor. How is it possible that at one point, they could have been wealthy? They were slaves.. how could any of the slaves (the Jewish people) have been wealthy during that time period? Surely they were taken away their freedoms to own goods in Goshen at that time, and have any sort of "wealth".

2) Do we know any specifics of the conversation between Moshe and his wife? Perhaps it's discussed in the oral law? I'm just very curious to know how that conversation went and was she immediately supportive, or did she think we has crazy? I don't mean to sound disrespectful, but hopefully it's a valid question.

Thank you very much. Reply

In perek 3 it says that Hashem Said to Moshe that they will listen to your voice why would they listen to his voice?

First of all, we see that the Jewish slaves in Egypt did have possessions. Because their livestock was not affected by the plagues, So some of the slaves had livestock...... Egypt was a slave owning Society. As we also see later that slaves from many other nations "The Mixes Multitude" decided to join the Jews.

But in truth, you don't even have to go this far. To know that everybody has something. Even the poorest of the poor slave have something and they could lose it where they have absolutely nothing. Reply
