More than half the world's population is familiar with the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt when they were liberated from slavery. In Jewish tradition, the Exodus is applied to the individual life journey, with captivities, freedoms and wildernesses. Religious groups and movements of liberation, from the Puritans and the Mormons to the American civil rights movement, have used it as a template and an inspiration in their own struggles for freedom. Revisiting the original story of the Exodus, Rabbi David Zaslow illuminates how it connects Jews and Christians, and explores how the struggles in Exodus can be applied to our issues today—personal and cultural.
