What Does It Mean To Have Faith?

Why Miriam Sang The Song Of The Sea

After crossing the Sea of Reeds, the nation of Israel sings a song of thanksgiving – and then Miriam leads the women of the nation in a second song of triumph. Why did she sing her own "Song of the Sea"? Was Moses' song of praise not enough?

In this video, Rabbi Fohrman explores a famous Midrash about the birth of Moses and unpacks Miriam's story, showing her to be a woman of great faith. Pointing to Miriam's example, he explains what it means to truly have faith in God.
