  1. Consider the meaning of exodus and liberation for the Israelites and for people today.  What are the forms of injustice and oppression that predominate today?  How has the exodus account inspired people on the margins of society, living as slaves, or facing political oppression?  How does/can the story of the biblical exodus speak today to people experiencing injustice?
  2. How would the stories of the exodus, liberation, and wilderness journey speak to Jewish communities in exile in Babylon as a landless people? How would it speak to communities in duress today?
  3. What do the story of the wanderings in the wilderness and the meaning of being a covenanted people tell us about the meaning of freedom that is not simply freedom from, but also freedom for?
  4. Why is ‘Law’ the main focus of Jewish communities regarding the Torah?  How would Law be understood and experienced positively?
  5. How has the Torah inspired liberation (and human/civil rights) movements?
  6. How has the Torah shaped Western civilization?
