Here comes Nissan!
Q-How were we zoche to be brought out of Mitzrayim? Could it be that Klal Yisrael continued doing the same things in Mitzrayim that they had been doing from the time we got there? Or did Klal Yisrael realize that they had enough of the slavery and therefore felt they had to change? I am pretty sure it’s option B. They felt that they had enough. They realized that Hashem was sending them messages (as there is an opinion that holds the Makos were also meant for Klal Yisrael) and they felt it was time to do something. Time to do things differently so they can be taken out.
So we see Nissan is a time to change!
Nissan’s (the car company) slogan is to “shift the way you move”. It looks like we have found where this slogan came from. Nissan (the month) is a time to change the way you “move” through life, to change the way every day passes by. It’s a time to do things differently that will help us become closer to Hashem.
We should all be zoche to shift the way we move and therefore come closer to being taken out of this slavery/Gallus.April 5, 2011 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #756676

My dad once bought a little yellow Datsun sports car with a flimsy cloth convertible roof. It had almost no back seat, but we kids would cram into the tiny bench. We loved it, but my Mom hated it.April 7, 2011 3:01 am at 3:01 am #756684ronrsrMember

Deiyzooger- your first post was more correct than the second. I was trying to hint that Nissan (the month) is a time to think how we can be better people.
NOTHING TO DO WITH CARS AND NOTHING TO DO WITH STAYING IN SHAPE!
