Exodus: Parshah Yitro | Rabbi Eytan Yehuda Dzikowski

Did you know…?

Ch.18, vs. 6

What happened at first, when Yitro tried to enter the Jewish Camp?

וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֔ה אֲנִ֛י חֹתֶנְךָ֥ יִתְר֖וֹ בָּ֣א אֵלֶ֑יךָ וְאִ֨שְׁתְּךָ֔ וּשְׁנֵ֥י בָנֶ֖יהָ עִמָּֽהּ׃

He sent word to Moses, “I, your father-in-law Jethro, am coming to you, with your wife and her two sons.”

At first Yitro wasn’t able to enter the Jewish camp because the Clouds of Glory completely sealed it off.

He therefore wrote a letter requesting to be admitted, which he tied to an arrow and shot through into the camp.

(Meam Loez, Chizkuni, Tzedah Laderech)
