Just when it appeared that all hope was lost, HaShem called to Moshe, “Lift your staff over the sea to split the waters. Then you and your people will walk safely on dry land. The Egyptians warriors together with their chariots will try to follow you, but they will all meet their end.”
Moshe followed HaShem’s orders and a fierce wind from the east split the sea! Those brave Jews who leaped first into the waves were saved, and the rest of Bnei Yisrael started to cross the sea on dry land.
It was an amazing miracle!
The waters split into 12 tunnels, giving each of the 12 tribes their own passage! The walls of the sea provided fresh water, and trees sprouted up bearing delicious fruits!
Bnei Yisrael were not the only witnesses to the miraculous parting of waters. At the very moment of the splitting of the Yam Suf, water everywhere split in half:
If there was water in a glass – it split! A bathtub – it split! A swimming pool – it split! Half of the waters all over the world moved to one side and the other half shifted to the other side!
As Bnei Yisrael walked further and further, the fierce wind continued to blow, opening the sea before them. Moshe stood at the entrance of the sea and waited until every last Jew passed through.
