When the Almighty Prevailed
"And it came to pass when Moses
held up his hand that Israel pre-
vailed, and when he let down his
hand, Amalek prevailed" (Exod.

Rabbis said: "But could the mere
position of the hand of Moses in-

times as the Israelites directed
their thoughts on high, and kept
their hearts sincerely turned to
