The exodus is a story of a journey.After the Temple fell the Jews went on a journey.
In 1933 the Jews who did not leave their comfort zone in Europe were murdered.
Eretz Israel was established because Jews went on a journey to establish a state.
The single constant in our history is change to go on a journey.
Today with the rise of technology and science ,religion has to go on a new journey to embrace the changes in our life.
