On Passover we are commanded to retell the story of Moses leading the Israelites from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land. When Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt, he catalyzed the birth of a nation. Every year on Seder night, we recount the great miracle of Exodus. Long before becoming God’s messenger, Moses killed an Egyptian taskmaster who was beating a Hebrew slave.

You are hereby summoned to fulfill your civic duty as a juror for a trial of epic proportions… The People vs. Moses

Join us for a unique event that brings together biblical scholarship and courtroom drama as we explore Moses’ guilt or innocence.

The trial begins with a text study. You will then enter the “courtroom” where Dan Abrams and Alan Dershowitz will serve, respectively, as prosecutor and defense attorney. The trial will be presided over by The Honorable Judge Alison J. Nathan. And then, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you will cast your votes.
