Make a Dedication
January 29, 2018
Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיִּקַּ֗ח יִתְרוֹ֙ חֹתֵ֣ן מֹשֶׁ֔ה אֶת־צִפֹּרָ֖ה אֵ֣שֶׁת מֹשֶׁ֑ה אַחַ֖ר שִׁלּוּחֶֽיהָ׃
So Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses’ wife, after she had been sent home,
Yitro allowed Moshe to marry Tzippora on condition that Moshe allow his firstborn to practice idolatry.
It is explained that this means that the firstborn should be willing to take on any job, even one that might be below his dignity as son of the leader of the Jewish people.
This was probably quite relevant considering that Moshe’s children didn’t succeed him, but rather, Yehoshua became the next leader.
(Mechilta Shemot 18:3)
