MC Shemos

In his introduction to seifer Shemos, Rav Meir Simchah haKohein discusses a few themes, some of which we covered in this shiur.

Why is Moshe’s nevu’ah special? Interestingly, the Meshekh Chokhmah emphasizes how we know that Moshe received nevu’ah, not the nature of the nevu’ah itself.

– Moshe, prophecy, and free will.
– The central role of free will in life.
– And, not covered: the hand-off from Moshe to Yehoshua.
