G-d brought Israel out of Egypt to lead them to freedom. He also brought them out to serve Him. Are they free or are they the servants of G-d? Or are they both? Fifty days after leaving Egypt, as Israel receives Torah at Sinai, the shofars are sounded, signifying that this is indeed a Jubilee redemption for Israel. Bound to G-d – Free at last!
