Baruch Hashem!

August 11, 2011 | by

Little Moishie Epstein was walking home from school holding his Tanach (Hebrew Bible) when he thought about his day’s lesson, and exclaimed loudly “Baruch Hashem” (praise God).

Along came a university student who had recently completed a religious studies course. He asked the boy what he was so excited about.

“Today in class my teacher taught me that that God opened up the waves of the Sea of Reeds and led the whole nation of Israel right through the middle."

The university student laughed lightly, sat down next to Little Moishie and began to try to open his eyes to the "realities" of the miracles of the Bible. "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10-inches deep at that time. So you see, it would have been no problem for the Israelites to wade across."

Little Moishie was stumped. The university student, content that he had enlightened a poor, naive young person to the finer points of scientific insight, turned to go. Scarcely had he taken two steps when Little Moishie said, “Baruch Hashem!” Confused, the university student asked for an explanation.

"Wow!" exclaimed Little Moishie happily, "God is greater than I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Sea of Reeds, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!"
