Who Was Moses?

Avivah Zornberg

Avivah Zornberg

The life of Moses is full of ambiguity. He is one of the most significant figures in Jewish history, making a uniquely potent contribution to both the Jewish religion and the Jewish nation, yet he grew up as an Egyptian. His extraordinary legacy and dual identity are explored by the eminent scholar Avivah Zornberg, whose Moses: A Life for the Yale University Press Jewish Lives series will be published later in 2016.
