3,321st Anniversary of Krias Yam Suf Tomorrow


krias-yam-sufTomorrow, Wednesday, Shvi’ih Shel Pesach, marks the 3,721st anniversary of the actual miraculous crossing of the Yam Suf by Klal Yisroel on their way out of the bondage in Mitzrayim and into history as an independent people. Six weeks later, the Yidden received the Torah at Har Sinai, and they entered Eretz Yisroel, led by Yehoshua Bin Nun 40 years afterwards.

Tomorrow is the last day of Pesach in Eretz Yisroel, while those in chutz la’aretz will celebrate Yom Tov sheini on Thursday.

  1. I think you made a mistake here…Yetzias Mitzraim was in the year 2448 that makes it 3,321 years ago not 3,721 years ago

  2. I meant 3321 years ago…sorry.

    Avrohom was born in 1948.
    Yitzchak was born 100 years later in 2048. That’s when the arba mei’os shana (400 years) clock started.

    Krias Yam Suf took place in 2448.

    5769 – 2448 = 3321

  3. K’rias Yam Suf didn’t look like that, although that is the way it is usually displayed. There were twelve “arches” of petrified water, not one giant crevasse in the midst of the sea.
