Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “The all-inclusive point of departure.”

“The essence of the Exodus is in the initial, faith-motivated decision to leave the ordinary, the routine life, and to follow God.

This is the all-inclusive point of departure.

Prior to that there is nothing.All the rest is elaboration.”
