Covenant & Conversation

Behaalotecha

There are, says Rabbi Soloveitchik, two ways in which people become a group – a community, society, or nation.
Faith and Friendship
After all that had happened – the miracles, the exodus, the division of the sea, food from heaven, water from a rock, the revelation at Sinai and the covenant that went with it – the people, yet again, were complaining about the food. And not because they were hungry; merely because they were bored.
No leadership position is easy. Leading Jews is harder still. And spiritual leadership can be hardest of them all.

For the first time since his mission began, he could see defeat staring him in the face.
