Hillel Day School P.T.O. presents

in contrast was first the
favored son of a doting father,
then a slave and a convict,
and finally a supreme ruler of
a mighty empire. Despite the
vicissitudes of his life, Joseph
remained loyal to the faith of
his fathers. In his father's
house, in the residence of
Potiphar, in prison or palace,
Joseph strongly maintained
his identity and upheld his
spiritual way of life.
Moses saw his people leav-
ing the land of oppression, of
the Goshen-ghetto, of poverty
and affliction. During the
long centuries of persecution
they never forgot who they
were or whence they came.

Shabbat Shira:
Exodus 13:17-17:16,
Judges 4:4-5:31

Their names were Jewish;
their clothing was distinctive;
their language - the sacred
tongue. But now, laden with
gold and silver, they were
leaving the land of their op-
pression. Here was a new
challenge - one with which
Moses feared they could not
properly cope.
Moses could hear the
arguments we still hear to-
day: Judaism survived as a
result of anti-Semitism; ex-
clusion forced the Jews to
create a vibrant way of life
among themselves, poverty
and ghettoization kept the

Jews pious and forced them to
concentrate on their own
culture and tradition. Tradi-
tional Judaism, we are told by
many well-meaning people,
was viable in the insulated
shtetl of Eastern Europe but
cannot thrive in the affluent,
pluralistic western world of
democracy, opportunity and
culture.
And so Moses decided to
demonstrate in a dramatic
way - not with words but
with example - that Torah
and Judaism are not meant
only for ghetto life, not only
for an "old country," not only
for poverty and oppression,
but equally for those blessed
with material wealth, with
recognition, fame and honor.
Joseph, Moses vividly
reminded his people, was the
same loyal son of Israel
whether injustly imprisoned
or at the summit of power.
Whether under the shadow of
a saintly father or in a licen-
tious Egyptian household,
Joseph never compromised
his standards and ideals. By
taking Joseph as a role
model, Moses sought to help
his people deal with
challenges of freedom and
affluence.
Thousands of years later in
our free and open society, we
too can create a Jewish life in
our homes and communities,
using God's blessings of
freedom and prosperity to
deepen and enrich the Jewish
heritage we are privileged to
enjoy.
