A Voice with No Echo: 19 Kislev, 5742 • December 15, 1981

At the Giving of the Torah, G-d’s voice was heard throughout all of creation proclaiming, “I am the L-rd your G-d Who took you out of Egypt.” Is this really G-d’s greatest accomplishment? Why didn’t He say, “I have created heaven and earth?”

Event Date: 19 Kislev 5742 - December 15, 1981

At the Giving of the Torah, G-d’s voice was heard throughout all of creation proclaiming, “I am the L-rd your G-d Who took you out of Egypt.” Is this really G-d’s greatest accomplishment? Why didn’t He say, “I have created heaven and earth?”

G-d’s ability to reveal Himself through and within Egypt itself, reveals His unique ability to unify opposites. So this truly is a measure of His Omnipotence, that even Egypt can be an expression His greatness.

When G-d declared His Unity at Sinai, His powerful voice reached every corner of the world, but had no echo. All of creation absorbed G-d’s voice and was imbued with a sense of true reality – that all is one with Him.

I just saw my late father listening intently. It was very moving. Reply
