We all have met one. One who is crying out in the wilderness, trying to get our attention to change our ways and show us that everything we are doing is totally wrong. We usually listen the first time, and then let their words take flight on the wind. Why? Their words eat at our very core and draw lines of division between us and "them." Who are these voices? They are the zealots of every religious institution - the ones who seek to get to the heart of the very evil in their midst (which is all of us).
In the world in which we live today, grandeur and wealth continue to be a means to power and influence. Despite this trend throughout history, it is important for us to recall a time when one person, and then a nation, made a remarkable transformation in a time akin to today. We see Moshe unravel the greatest illusion and break through the arrogance of a leader whose kingdom was built on the sand. We also see our people receive the first mitzvah, the key for a return journey, which would not only bring redemption, but lead them on the path back to Gan Eden.
