Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How did Moshe know about all creatures that exist and their Kosher status?
דַּבְּר֛וּ אֶל־בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לֵאמֹ֑ר זֹ֤את הַֽחַיָּה֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר תֹּאכְל֔וּ מִכָּל־הַבְּהֵמָ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר עַל־הָאָֽרֶץ׃
Speak to the Israelite people thus: These are the creatures that you may eat from among all the land animals:
Moshe was shown all the creatures of the world and Hashem pointed out which ones may be eaten and which ones may not.
This is alluded by the word “ze/this,” as if to say, “this one yes, this one no.” (Tosafot in Chulin)
These signs were given for future generations, since this generation had been shown all the species and therefore didn’t need the signs. (Meam Loez, Yeffe Tohar)
