After the Exodus, everything happens in the Desert; the Book we'll start reading tomorrow is 'Bamidbar" – "in the Desert"; many things happen in the Desert; the first Encounter and Covenant between G!d and the Sons of Israel as a people (which will happen in another few days on Shavuot…), the Golden Calf, the Tabernacle, the Exploration of the Land, and some ups and many downs, leading to the fact that the Generation of the Desert, including Moshe and Aharon, will never enter the "Promised Land" .
Is this the inevitable scenario? Does every process, involving much uncertainty, a frustrating tragedy for the First Generation, who'll never reach the Promised Land? Maybe some generations have to get satisfaction and comfort by believing that the "Promised Land" will be reached by the next generation.
Shabbat Shalom and Hodesh Tov to all,
