I have to share something so beautiful with you.
The night before we heard G-d’s voice, it says that Moshe Rabbeinu went to every Jewish house and took them himself to Mount Sinai.
Let me ask you something. Didn’t everybody know that G-d is going to speak to us on that day before dawn? We were waiting for so long, we came out of Egypt and walked through the desert mamesh from Pesach to Shavuos for that great morning. If we knew the schedule, so why did Moshe Rabbeinu have to go to every house? And the answer is from the holy Alexanderer. The Holy Rebbe of Alexander says that when you’re a pupil of Moshe Rabbeinu, you suddenly see how beautiful everyone else is.
This is the holiness of Moshe Rabbeinu, and unless you learn this don’t come to Mount Sinai.
I hate to say bad things, imagine we would know that next week at dawn we [there will be a] broadcast from the Lord and all the holy people are invited. Everybody will push themselves through and think, “Well, of course I should be there.” Then we get there, and when we see another person that we know, we think to ourselves, “The chutzpah! What’s he doing here, I mean only holy people are invited! What’s he doing here, I know him for so long, he doesn’t belong there.”
You know what happened on Mount Sinai? The most unbelievable thing. Every family thought to themselves, “I’m sure we are not meant to be here, but our neighbors? Oh, they are so holy, they are so special.”
The most awesome thing was that everyone was convinced that the other one is meant to experience it, but not themselves. So Moshe Rabbeinu had to knock on every door, telling every family, “You thought you are not wanted, you thought it is only everyone else who is on the level. Don’t you see, these thoughts mamesh bring you to Mount Sinai!”
Can you imagine what a holy community was standing at Mount Sinai? Everybody thinking somebody else is so good.
Someday, someday it will be like this again, hopefully. What a world.
