Before giving Moses the Torah, God needed a guarantee that the Torah would be taken care of, kept safe, and treated as preciously as it should be. God told Moses to find a group of guarantors who could make sure of this, but with 600,000 Israelites waiting for the Torah, it wasn’t so easy. How does Moses figure it out? Rabbi Matt Gewirtz retells the story. For a written version, see Our Children Should Be Our Guarantors in “The Classic Tales: 4,000 Years of Jewish Lore” by Ellen Frankel.
