After the death of Miriam, the Israelites thirst for water. And the now familiar complaints rise up to a grieving Moses and Aaron. They hold back their anger and frustration to hear Hashem's instruction to speak to the rock. But Moses can hold himself back no longer and strikes the rock with his staff, and the water springs forth. In honor of Miriam, with an extra helping of patience and forbearance and the summer season we feature watermelon.
