What Did Moses Do Wrong? Part I

The Hidden Reason Moses Was Not Allowed Into The Promised Land

This week's parsha begins Moses' speech to the people of Israel before they begin their entrance to the land of Israel. In his speech, Moses recalls much that the nation has gone through over the past 40 years in the desert, including when God told him he wouldn't be allowed to enter the promised land.

In this video, the first of two parts, Rabbi Fohrman explores the odd way Moses references this story, and connects the idea of hitting the rock to the small, seemingly-unimportant story of Jethro and the judges.
