Let's be clear: G-d parted the Sea of Reeds


Dear Editor:

I just read Marcus M. Gilban’s article about Israeli folk dancing (“COVID-19 hasn’t stopped one of Israel’s national passions: folk dance,” May 22).

Mr. Gilban wrote, “Jews and dancing go way back — when Moses opened the Red Sea waters.”

Perhaps he was misled by one of his journalistic sources, but Jewish tradition teaches that G-d, not Moses, performed that miracle. I think a correction is in order.

(At the risk of sounding pedantic, it was the Sea of Reeds, not the Red Sea. But that’s just semantics, and I’m anti-Semantic.)

Thanks, and keep up the good wor...
