        Rethinking Exodus for Joint Liberation An invitation — to Jews, non-Jews, Bible readers and not — to explore some ideas about liberation and get ourselves, together, out of this mess. Vayikra, The Rona/COVID, and Mutual Aid. Judaism is an ancient monotheistic religion, with the Torah as its foundational text (part of the larger text known as the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible), and supplemental oral tradition represented by later texts such as the Midrash and the Talmud.

      Unlike any other anti-Semitic incident, the Tree of Life Congregation tragedy has destroyed American Jews’ assumptions about our place in American society.   The book's case studies demonstrate how this occured in the Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist wings of Judaism, as well as among Jewish feminists. For example, Eisen examines the Passover Seder, the Jewish ritual most widely observed even by the least observant and most secular of Jews.
