Va'etchanan

Understatement
“Who took you out of Egypt”? Talk about sweating the small details! What about “who created heaven and earth”? Surely stage-managing the Exodus doesn’t even approach His role as designer and creator of the universe!
Have you ever caught yourself contemplating your own mortality? What will people think about you when you're gone? Will it really matter once you're gone?

The awesome sounds of G‑d resonated throughout the universe... but there was no echo. The greatest sound and light show in history was a strictly one-time production with no residuals or encore.
