Are San Francisco Jews Heading Back To Egypt For Passover?

Why is Moses heading back to Egypt for Passover?

This is the question visitors to the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties center and webpage are asking after seeing the JCF Passover message with Moses facing toward, not away from, the Egyptian pyramids.

Maybe he had enough of freedom, maybe the Children of Israel were just too stiff-necked to bear or maybe Moishe Rabeinu is wearing an NSFW T-shirt under his robe that flips the bird to Pharaoh.

We will never know. Though I shall ask the wonderful people at JCF if they have a comment in the few scarce hours before the festival starts.
