The Red Sea


As Moses and the children of Israel were crossing the Red Sea, the
children of Israel began to complain to Moses of how thirsty they were
after walking so far. Unfortunately, they were not able to drink from
the walls of water on either side of them, as they were made up of
salt-water.  Then, a fish from that wall of water told Moses that he
and his family heard the complaints of the people, but that they through 
their own gills could remove the salt from the water and force it out
of their mouths like a fresh water fountain for the Israelites to drink
from as they walked by.  Moses accepted this kindly fish's offer. But
before the fish and his family began to help, they told Moses they had a
demand. They and their descendants had to be always present at the seder
meal that would be established to commemorate the Exodus, since they had a
 part in the story.  When Moses agreed to this, he gave them their name
which remains how they are known to this very day, for he said to them,

"Go Filter Fish!"
