Thought of the Week with thanks to Rabbi Leon Anaf. The first verse in this week’s Torah reading states “He called to Moshe…” . G-d called him Moshe. The name Moshe is perhaps the most famous name in Jewish history. Moshe actually had ten names! He had names that described his essence and his monumental work. Moshe grew up to be a man of G-d and an eternal hero. Although Moshe spoke with G-d, he never forgot that all his greatness would never have been had he not been pulled out from the waters of the Nile by Pharaoh’s daughter. There was never a moment that he didn’t give tribute to that act.
Our Rabbis teach us that in order to succeed spiritually, it is vital that we set our goals and that we stay on course. But what is equally important is that we remember our beginnings. Moshe always remembered that with all of his accomplished names that he accumulated he was still Moshe — rescued from the river. Hashem called him Moshe.
