This book is a continuation of We’re Leaving Egypt, the Just Imagine comic about Yetzias Mitzrayim. This volume is intended to illustrate for children living in our generation, the wondrous miracles which were performed for our forefathers at Yam Suf. At the time of Kriyas Yam Suf, of course, there were no cars, tanks, or airplanes. This book attempts to describe, in an entertaining and entirely imaginary way, what the splitting of the sea might look like if it took place today.
The world has changed drastically in the thousands of years that have passed since Yetzias Mitzrayim and therefore, it is very hard for us to feel the reality that existed in those days. It’s hard for us to connect to the power of the wondrous miracles that occurred. It’s hard for us to understand how astounding and exceptional they were, so much so that the mind can hardly grasp it…
But the truth is that the miracles then were not significantly different than similar miracles that could take place in our time…When the sea split for Bnei Yisrael, who crossed it as if it was dry land, it was an unbelievable miracle, just like it would be unbelievable if the sea split today and we would be able to drive through it on paved roads. When grass grew from the sea bed that froze, miraculously, it was a wonder of wonders, just like it would be a marvel in our time, if a gas station would “sprout” from the depths of the ocean…The same applies to all the other remarkable miracles.
You’re invited to join the Yidden leaving Egypt and cross the Yam Suf with them!
Experience for yourself the amazing miracles that accompanied them every step of the way.
