In the darkest depths of the Egyptian exile, Torah introduces us to a ray of redemptive light by the name of Moshe (Moses). Even though Moshe the prophet and servant of G-d will accompany us throughout the entirety of the next four of the five books of Torah, the Torah divulges precious little information about Moshe. But what it does provide is all we need to know, not only about Moshe, but also about our own potential role in the redemptive process of Israel.
