Synopsis: Is there nothing new to learn from reading the Book of Exodus again? Must all attempts at finding relevant meaning for today wallow in superficiality and flightiness? As he did with the Book of Genesis, veteran educator and Bible teacher Rabbi Francis Nataf shows us that careful and creative analysis of the text can still reap completely new and provocative insights geared to the intelligent modern reader. In a series of sophisticated yet readable essays, Rabbi Nataf uses his literary awareness and profound knowledge of text, Midrash and commentaries to come up with refreshingly original readings of some of the major stories in Exodus. The centrality of exile and alienation, national memory, the significance of clothing and how to relate to the other are only some of the topics that he discusses via the Biblical text's treatment of Moshe, Moshe's family and the Jewish nation as a whole. A must-read for anyone looking to appreciate how we should study Exodus in our time.

About the Author: Rabbi Francis Nataf is the Educational Director of the David Cardozo Academy in Jerusalem and the author of Redeeming Relevance in the Book of Genesis (Urim, 2006). He has also published numerous articles concerning Jewish education, Bible and Jewish thought. Rabbi Nataf was ordained at Yeshiva University and holds degrees in Jewish history and international affairs.
