When Miracles Are Not Enough
The transformation into a sacred people occurs not through miracles but rather through steady education, discipline and communal reinforcement.
Such a transformation is much more difficult than merely splitting a sea. It involves a tenacity and an openness that must be cultivated continually. But the reward of such a transformation is precisely what God sought more than three thousand years ago at the shores of the Red Sea--a Jewish community that puts God at the center through the study, practice, and development of our sacred Heritage.
