A Promise for All Time
"I shall be as I shall be." (Shmot 3:14)
This is what G-d instructed Moshe to answer to the enslaved Jews in Egypt who would ask what is the Name of the G-d who sent him to them with a promise of liberation.
Rashi explains that this double phrasing of the Divine Name was intended as a message that G-d would be with his chosen people in the present exile and would be with them in the future exiles as well.
This promise should serve as a source of comfort for Jews in our own time when we face such a shocking increase in anti-Semitic acts throughout the world and an escalation in the danger to Jews in their own land.
We must never lose sight of the promise which G-d fulfilled for our ancestors in Egypt and in subsequent exiles and must strengthen our faith in the inevitable fulfillment of His promise to protect Israel forever.
