Passover As an Inside Job

Moses Breaking the Tablets of the Law by Rembrandt (1659)

With all the division in Israel and the world, it may be refreshing to resort to some belly button gazing.

In this view, Pharoah represents repression, with Moses being the therapist who leads the person or patient (rather than people) to freedom. The forty years wandering in the desert then becomes the existential question of what to do with possibility and the promised land the attainment of wishes and desires.
