One reason given is that this is
suppos-ed to be a reminder to all
future generations including our
own of the miracles which the
Almighty provided for His people
during their perilous journey as a
symbol of His divine providence
and concern for the children of Is-
rael (Nahmanides). A similar
reason is advanced by other com-
mentaries (Rashi) to the effect
that this accounting was given to
show that in spite of the fact that
the Almighty punished the Israel
ites by making them take the long
route from Egypt to Israel. He
had mercy on them and allowed
them to rest at so many stations.
Some claim that the reason for
the various stops mentioned in the
Bible is that any Jewish traveler
coming across those places would
be obligated to offer a special _
benediction thanking God for hav-
. ing performed miracles for his
forefathers in these places. From
the practical standpoint, of course,
the names of the places are given
because special episodes of great
significance to the history of the
people of Israel took place there.
Generally speaking, it might be
said that the Bible was interested
in showing that the change in the
historical development of mankind,
must be a gradual process of ad-
justment and not an abrupt revo-

Why was a small container of
the manna which the Jews ate in
the wilderness stored in the sanc-
tuary of old?
Some commentaries claim that
this was Bone to serve as a re-
minder to the people of the future
that the Almighty will always pro-
vide a means of sustenance for
the human race if they prove
worthy. This was done lest some
would say that they had no time
for the study of Torah or for good
deeds because they must give all
their time to their trade or busi-
ness in order to earn a living.
Even if a man should resolve to
spend all day in pursuit of his
learning, some commentaries point
out that the Almighty will always
find a way to sustain him. Gener-
ally speaking, the appearance of
the manna was one of those mirac-
ulous events which happened to the
Israelites during their travels in
the wilderness and as such it was
felt necessary to preserve the
memory of this great act by the
Almighty in behalf of His people.
This is considered so relevant for
our lives, even today, that many
prayer books contain the passage
from the Bible describing this
event as a reading to be recited in
the synagogue every morning after
the morning services.
