Leading biblical scholars and archaeologists have argued for decades about the actual route of the biblical Exodus from Egypt. Join Rawicz as she follows the route that Moses and the Israelites took as they fled Egypt three and a half millennia ago. Margaret Malka Rawicz treks through treacherous deserts and terrain with her Bedouin guides, in order to rediscover and identify the sites of the first fifteen known Israelite encampments. She then explores another eighteen encampments in Eastern Sinai, along the Israeli/Sinai border and in the Negev Desert, and the final nine in Jordan.
Including photographs and personal stories, Walking the Exodus is not only one individual's discovery, but also a personal and spiritual transformation of one's life.

Praise for Walking the Exodus
“When, in one individual, an intrepid spirit meets an insatiable appetite for discovery, some delightful odyssey is bound to be the outcome. Malka (Margaret) Rawicz has pioneered creative ways of discovering and presenting facets of Torah that would daunt other students and seasoned educators. She also has a knack for blithely embarking on jaw-dropping journeys, from the African bush to the Antarctic. In this book, which reads like a cross between a camel-back adventure story and a piece of meticulous research, the author shares with the reader both these fascinating facets of herself. It is particularly refreshing that the research takes the biblical account of the Exodus and the subsequent journeys of the Israelites at its word. It seeks to verify that account by geographical, physical, and linguistic evidence.”
