Rabbi David Zaslow will teach a six-session class based on his newly published book “Reimagining Exodus; A Freedom Story.” The biblical Exodus is the most influential liberation and freedom story ever told. It has served as both an inspiration for Puritans, American revolutionaries, abolitionists, Mormons, the modern civil rights movement, and revolutionaries the world over. Participants will not only learn how the story has been used historically by non-Jews, but how in Jewish tradition the Exodus has also been applied to the individual life journey with its enslavements, challenges, liberations, and revelations. This groundbreaking course explores the Exodus as the intersection of this foundational story for Judaism and Christianity.
