Learn with Rabbi Josh Taub: “How’s This for a Theory: The Exodus from Egypt Never Happened”
Thu. January 6, 2022 – 12:00pm
Join Rabbi Josh Taub for a daytime learning class on “How’s This for a Theory: The Exodus from Egypt Never Happened.” If we consider what one scholar calls “literary based historical geography,” the Hebrew Bible will show that the famous Israelite migration (The Exodus) never involved Egypt, slavery to Pharaoh or a journey across the Sinai peninsula. The narrative in the Torah is an allegorical tale about internal strife in the unified Israelite nation.
Classes will take place on Thursdays, January 6, 13, 20 and 27 from 12-1pm in Linz Hall and on zoom.
