Jerome L. Stern Pre-Pesah Lecture with Rabbi Shai Held
An Exodus for Egyptians? Reading Genesis and Isaiah Together
In anticipation of Pesah, experience the Bible as you’ve never seen it before. You already know the story of the Israelis being redeemed from slavery in Egypt. But the Bible has other visions of exodus too, and two of them—remarkably—are occasions in which Egyptians experience God’s liberation themselves. In this lecture, presented in partnership with the Hadar Institute, Rabbi Shai Held will explore the Bible’s many visions of exodus and what it means to experience oppression and liberation from the other side.
