Mayim Shelanu


Collecting Mayim Shelanu 1

Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Jews are collecting water from a mountain spring outside Jerusalem.

The water will be used in the making of matzah, or unleavened bread, that is eaten instead of regular bread during the week-long Jewish holiday of Pesach (Passover), which commemorates the Jews’ exodus from Egypt in Biblical times.

The water, once collected, will sit overnight, and be used the next day for the matzah baking. That water is called “Mayim Shelanu”, water that has slept.

  4. Gen 46:34. every shepherd is an abomination to the Egyptians.

    Ex 8:22. And Moses said, we sacrifice to the Lord our God what is abomination for the Egyptians. Shall we sacrifice what is abomination for the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us?

    Ex 12:12. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment; I am the Lord.

    Num 33:4. For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the Lord had struck among them; upon their gods also the Lord executed judgments.

    When the Holy One, blessed be He, told Moses to slay the paschal lamb, Moses answered: Lord of the Universe! How can I possibly do this thing? Dost Thou not know that the lamb is the Egyptian god? ‘ As it says: Lo, if we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, will they not stone us? (Ex. VIII, 22). God replied: As thou livest, Israel will not depart from here before they slaughter the Egyptian gods before their very eyes, that I may teach them that their gods are really nothing at all ! This is what He actually did; for on that night He slew the Egyptian firstborn and on that night the Israelites slaughtered their paschal lamb and ate it. When the Egyptians beheld their firstborn slain and their gods slaughtered, they could do nothing; as it says: While the Egyptians were burying them that the Lord had smitten among them, even all their firstborn; upon their gods also the Lord executed judgment (Num. XXXIII, 4).
    Midrash Rabbah – Exodus XVI:3

  17. Yechiel Baum says:

    able bodied men who seem fit to serve in the IDF which is as important as baking matzos which can be done by women! How shameful!

  18. Felix Moses says:

    I only wish that the Haredi and other Jews remember and accept and believe what our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ said in John 6:35:

    And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

  19. Nicole Marie Abusharekh says:
