The Ten Commandments, which can be literally translated from the Hebrew as the ‘Ten Pronouncements’, are a central feature, repeated twice. Nevertheless, when Moses is given the instructions on how to build the Tabernacle another Midrash says that he tells G-d he is ready and able to serve as priest.

Proclaimed aloud by G-d to the entire people prior to Moses' ascent, they are the foundational principles of the Judeo-Christian ethic. I am the L-rd, your G-d who took you out from the land of Egypt. How can this be so if had been informed at the burning bush that Aaron was to serve as priest and if Moses himself had actually rejoiced over this?

Moses, the younger, may indeed be the leader, but his sons not only do not inherit his position, they are all but forgotten in our narrative.

It is the story of a remarkable human being, one not free of human flaws, but one nevertheless endowed with qualities that enable him to lead his people from slavery to the verge of independence in their Promised Land. However for seven days, when the Tabernacle is dedicated, Moses will be allowed to perform the priestly functions, but not after that.

According to Jewish tradition, not just the Ten Commandments but the entire Torah – the 'Law of Moses' - was given on Mt Sinai. Moses' reaction to what might be perceived as a punishment is to rejoice over the good fortune of his brother Aaron.

(I was so perplexed about not registering this relationship, I had to look back at my calendar – was I away? Sean Penn is dating Vincent D’Onofrio’s daughter?!?!?!?! Leila George (as she is known professionally) is 25 now (24 when they started dating). So Sean is a year younger than Leila’s dad and Leila is a year younger than Sean’s daughter (as Lainey pointed out last year). They’ve both been working actors for decades, so they must have crossed paths at some point, right? What does Vincent think of the mercurial Sean Penn?… continue reading »
