Moses Has Had Enough – Rabbi David Kasher

June 12th, 2020 — Shabbat Behalotekha

It starts out as a familiar scene in the Torah: The people complain. God gets angry. Moses has to intercede and pray for mercy.
But this time, something snaps in Moses. When God gets angry, Moses gets angry right back. And then – in one of the most shocking moments in the Torah – he asks God to please just go ahead kill him.
What was it that brought Moses to the brink? And what will it take to bring him back?
