Exodus / Shemot: Encounter with the Other with Marc Michael Epstein

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

If the Book of Genesis is about the “original Jewish family,” its parental favoritism and its sibling rivalries, the Book of Exodus is about what happens when that family encounters problematic others. Join us as we discuss, among other things, why Miriam was a prophetess; what “matter was known” that caused Moses to flee Egypt for Midian; Moses’ utter lack of suitability for Jewish leadership, and what your S.U.V., a Christmas creche and your angry neighbors have to do with the Exodus from Egypt.
