The Exodus from Egypt: Judaism’s Master Story of Hope

Tuesday, March 16, 2021 3 Nisan 5781

7:00 PM - 8:30 PMZoom

This session will explore the concept of the Exodus as a master story and as such, how it positions hope at the very heart of Judaism. We’ll discuss midrashic texts on the Exodus which illustrate hope in action, Moses’ leadership role in sustaining the Israelites’ hope for redemption, and several suggestions for conversations at your Passover Seder. David Arnow, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, received his doctorate from Boston University. He is a scholar of the festival of Passover and the author of many articles and two books on that subject, including Creating Lively Passover Seders: A Sourcebook of Engaging Tales, Texts & Activities, 2nd Edition (2011), and My People’s Passover Haggadah: Traditional Texts, Modern Commentaries (2008), co-edited with Lawrence A. Hoffman. He is a coauthor of the website “Exodus Conversations: How the Story of the Exodus Speaks to Jews, Christians, and Muslims” ( and Leadership in the Bible: A Practical Guide for Today, co-authored with Paul Ohana. His latest book, Choosing Hope: The Heritage of Judaism, will be published by The Jewish Publication Society in March of 2022.
