Meanwhile, back in the Jewish camp, Moshe had an important announcement. “People of Israel, prepare to move forward!”
“Move on?!” they asked. “Where? Into the raging sea?”
“Yes, into the Yam Suf,” Moshe responded. “The waters will split, the sea will become perfectly dry, and you will be safe.”
Someone had to make a move. Someone had to show their faith in Moshe and in HaShem. And that someone was the brave, Nachshon, son of Aminadav, the prince of the tribe of Yehudah.
He leaped into the stormy waves. Following his lead, more people jumped in after him. They all walked forward, deeper and deeper… until the water reached their necks!
