    I am sorry the spelling came out poorly from my iPhone. What I meant was the Mikva. How can one use the Mikva On Shabbos?

    Beautiful shiur! Very uplifting as always. I have one question. How is someone allowed to go to the mixer on Shabbos If you are not allowed to separate the chaff from the kernel because you are removing something from the hidden world into the revealed world and then how are you allowed to go in the mixer which is going into the concealed world and bringing out oneself into the reveal world as a new creation

    To speak was a compromise for Moshe

    But. ....nevertheless Hashem wanted him to speak to Pharaoh (and to the yidden). Speech was required. 

    Therefore Hashem directed that Aaron be his partner to speak. Indeed Hashem himself created the world by speaking, spoke the Aseres Hadibros, etc. 

    Maybe Moshe couldn't speak because of who he was, but nevertheless speech is necessary.

    The Rebbe of the fish explains to his chasidim

    That there is such a thing a people on dry land.  Even though they can't see them. 

    He further explains that these people will die if they are taken out of their atmosphere and existence, i.e. off the dry land with air and oxygen and come into the world and atmosphere of the fish, i.e. underwater.

    Moshe was drawn out of the water

    All babies first are submerged in the amniotic sack of water. Then birth draws them out. 

    In creation the land itself was created by drawing it out of the water that covered the earth. 

    Even our lower waters (the seas) were drawn out of the upper waters. 

    This is a continuous process of extracting the hidden  from the concealed. 

    Such drawing out the concealed from that which conceals is purification (eg mikva) but the process was reversed for the mitzrim who drowned, i.e.  they were drowned forever.

    The sea covers up a whole marine world

    But.....that is only to our landbound eyes in landbound creatures. 

    This is  opposite to the fish in the sea who "see" the marine world but cannot see our world on dry land.

    It's only a matter of  perspective limited by our reality.

    The fire which came down from Shomayim and "ate up" the korban

    The lion is the "king of the animals" and so it is fitting that the supernal lion eats up the animal korbonos down below

    The Mitzrim started with drowning the yidden

    And they were finished off by drowning. None of the plagues involved drowning. This fate was left for the end.

    How would drowning make the mitzrim know about Hashem? (Though we're not sure how word traveled then, like how they knew the yidden were lost) the survivors back in Mitzrayim (not all the mitzrim were drowned after all) would certainly know why the soldiers never came back.
