Lessons From the Parsha…

) ה."ַו ִתּ ְשׁ ַלח ֶאת ֲא ָמ ָתהּ ַו ִתּ ָקּ ֶח ָה" (ב
רש"יbrings from חז"לthat ' בתיstretched out her hand in order to grab the basket in which Moshe was, and,
miraculously, her hand grew many אמותuntil she was able to reach it.
There was once a gathering of רבניםand כללleaders in the city of Lublin, discussing an issue that dealt with
saving the lives of Yidden. An idea came up to solve the problem. One of the עסקניםdeclared that the idea
mentioned would be too difficult to carry out.
Rav Meir Shapiro protested emotionally: We find that ' בתיtried with all of her strength to reach the basket
of Moshe, until a נסhappened and her arm stretched. The question arises: What was she thinking when she
stretched her arm out? How was she expecting to reach it? Was she really expecting a נסto happen?
What the פרשהhere is teaching us, said Rav Meir Shapiro, is that whenever we have a lofty goal to reach, it is
up to us to put in every ounce of strength that we can muster in order to achieve that goal, even if it seems
unattainable to us. We have no right to give up! We must do our utmost, and then leave the rest to the רבונו של
We, too, said Rav Meir Shapiro, must try with all of our strength to succeed, and then, 'בעזרת ה, we will!
