Wednesday, 31st January 2018

In this weeks sedra (Torah portion), we are told by Moshe (Moses) what Hashem (G-d) wanted him to relate to the Bnei Yisroel (Children of Israel) as a preview to Matan Torah (receiving the Torah). During this discourse that Moshe is giving, he is told to tell Bnei Yisroel: “You have seen that which I have done to Egypt and I carried you on the wings of the eagle and I brought you to me.” This was on the night of the Korban Pesach (the pascal offering), when Hashem brought the Bnei Yisroel on the wings of an eagle from Raamses where they were in Egypt to the place where the Temple was to be built, Har HaMoriah (Mt Moriah). There they ate the Korban Pesach and were transported back to Egypt where they came from.

The question that begs to be answered is, what was the significance of transporting them on the wings of an eagle? Surely there must be some message here for us?

The sages say that the message is clear. The eagle is different from all other birds. It is the highest flier in the species and also differs from other birds in the way it carries its young. All birds have a fear of the eagle and therefore carry their young beneath them, whereas the eagle being the highest flier carries its young above its body, as its only fear is arrows or other projectiles shot by the humans.

Hashem did the same to the Bnei Yisroel, protected them like the eagle, from the dangers below.

There is however a further important message and that is that the eagle can carry its young but cannot pick them up. The young need to jump on its back in the first instance. Hashem is saying to us, I will take you and help you sore to the heights but you have to make the first leap. That leap of faith and the first jump can carry us to great heights.
