The Exodus Story
Passover is one of the most celebrated and widely observed holidays of the Jewish people around the world. It sits at the heart of the nation of Israel, bringing together family and friends of multiple generations and diverse backgrounds to commemorate the seminal event in Jewish history, the Exodus.
At the heart of Passover is the seder, the ritual meal held on the first night. The focus of the seder is re-telling the Exodus narrative and hearing the story as if for the first time. This annual storytelling energizes the Jewish people and is the force that has held them together for millennia – through exiles, pogroms, persecution, and the Holocaust.
In this month’s Limmud, we will explore the underlying message of the Exodus story and discover why it is an essential and powerful component of both the Jewish and Christian faiths.Download Now
