Nations, like individuals, shape their dreams, determinations, hopes, and aspirations by the stories they hear and the tales they’re told. For the Jewish people, the great story has always been that of the Egyptian exodus. We tell it to our children before they are old enough to ask, and we continue to tell it until we gray with age. The wise and the simple, the sage and the layman, all tell the same tale. And it has had an impact on who we are today – it must have had!
A Tale that Shaped a Nation unlocks the hidden gems of the greatest tale – revealing for all, the detail and nuances that make us unique and chosen. A wise man once said “Judge a nation by the stories they tell.” He was right. Based on what we have achieved throughout our short existence, our story must be truly special.
