Why did God choose Moses to serve as the leader of the Jewish people?

Did Moses possess degrees in fields relevant to leadership or have vast amounts of experience? Was he particularly popular among the Jewish people? What made him the perfect candidate to lead the Jewish people out of their bitter bondage in a foreign land?

In this week’s Torah portion, “Shemot,” we learn the secret behind God’s decision to take a simple shepherd and elevate him to one of the greatest leaders in all of human history.

Rabbi Ari Enkin, Rabbinic Director of United with Israel, explains in this video the character traits that made Moses the perfect candidate for this formidable position, and inspires us to cultivate those traits in ourselves!
