Moshe and the Rock (Parshas Chukas)

 "Now listen, you rebels," said Moses (and Aaron) some thousands of years ago to the Jews in the desert, "can we draw water for you from this rock?"

That's number one. Outta this world.

Number two is what a shock to be told just like that you can't enter the Land, the Land you lived for, pretty much. On second thought, he must've known that when he was up in Heaven, being taught the entire Torah. Oh my G-d, then he could've prevented this by realizing he ought to listen to His word and speak, not strike. Hmmm. Interesting. Better go see what them Chassidic Masters have to say...
