Moses Embracing Celibacy and Breaking the Tablets : The Talmud on preparing for the giving of the Torah

In this Talmud class we analyze the rest of the actions Moshe Rabbeinu appears to have unilaterally ordained, in addition to adding an extra day of preparation for Revelation at Sinai. See just how Moses, the unparalleled master prophet deduced the will of G-d and (although uninstructed) chose to embrace a life of celibacy from Matan Torah onward, and elected to shatter the Luchot upon seeing the Jewish people’s spiritual debauchment in worshipping the hastily fashioned Golden Calf! (Talmud Tractate Shabbat pg. 87)

Thank you very much for this video. Rabbi, your lecture in this video provided me sufficient information to piece together (rather by negative reference) an acceptable (hopefully) answer to a nagging question. I enjoyed this extremely interesting and informative lecture. Thank you for taking the time to make videos for us. Reply
