Some folks will tell us, with absolute certainty, that the Exodus never happened, others will insist that it did. Bible scholar Richard Elliott Friedman has recently surveyed the arguments and offered a surprising new approach of his own. (The Exodus, 2017 "Gripping and persuasive"; NYT Book Review) 

In this session we'll review his account of "How it Happened and Why It Matters" and gain insights that will open our seder companions' eyes wider than a spoon full of horseradish when we share this scholar's surprising insights.
