Exodus and Sinai: New Thoughts on Jewish Identity

By Sidney Schwarz

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2005

The author asserts that Exodus and Sinai serve as metaphors for the twin impulses that are at work in Jewish history, Jewish community and Jewish identity. In reflecting on Jewish identity, he urges that Jewish communities would do well to recommit to God's charge to Abraham in Genesis 18: to do righteousness and justice.
