Exodus 13 (in photos)

God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea. The Israelites went up out of Egypt ready for battle.

Moses took the bones of Joseph with him because Joseph had made the Israelites swear an oath. He had said, “God will surely come to your aid, and then you must carry my bones up with you from this place.” (Exodus 13:18-19)

The Jewish community in Warsaw, Poland, held a funeral for an unidentified Holocaust victim after human remains were recently discovered in an area that belonged to the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. The remains were found after a water break in a building, and are believed to belong to a Jew hiding there when German forces crushed the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943. The remains were buried in Warsaw’s Jewish Cemetery on Sept. 14, 2021, with Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich, leading the ceremony. (Vanessa Gera/Associated Press)
