Exodus Study Group, Week 1

Our Exodus (Shemot) study group met for the first time on Wednesday, January 3.

Here is the study sheet that we used during the class:

Exodus Study Group Week 1.

Note that on the sheet, I shared four translations of our Torah text:

1) Jewish Publication Society (JPS)

2) Everett Fox

3) Richard Elliott Friedman

4) Robert Alter

The first two are available online as options for viewing the Torah on the Sefaria website:



JPS is the translation used in our chumash, Etz Hayim

Everett Fox's translation can be acquired in book form  here: https://www.amazon.com/Five-Books-Moses-Leviticus-Deuteronomy/dp/0805211195
