Leaving Mitzrayim our forefathers were on the lowest ebb of spirituality - even one more moment and they would have been at a place of no return! And yet, a mere 49 days later they had risen to such a level of enhanced spirituality that they perceived a prophetic vision at Mount Sinai that no prophet after them ever beheld!
How do individuals - let alone an entire people - transform themselves and rise to such great heights in so short a period of time?!
Furthermore, what message, if any, does this carry for us as their descendants? How do/can we actualize their great accomplishment?
