Moses Springs is where the prophet Moses is believed to have, upon the command of God, throw a unique tree into the brackish water that made the springs water drinkable. The story of the springs tells that Moses met Zipporah his future wife, after protecting her and her sisters from a violent group of shepherds. These springs are the monastery's main source of water and according to the monks they never dry up. Today the spring is still brackish, and there is no tree anywhere, but seven of the original 12 springs still existed during the 19th century, the springs became known as the largest of the Sinai Oases which became a popular retreat spot for foreign diplomats.
