The Exodus has been central to Judaism: it served to orient Jews towards the celebration of God’s actions in history, in contrast to polytheistic celebrations of the gods’ actions in nature, and even today it is recounted daily in Jewish prayers and celebrated in the festival of Pesach.
A myth is any worldview-based traditional story, collection or study. It is derived from the Greek word mythos (μύθος), which simply means “story”. Mythology can refer either to the study of myths, or to a body or collection of myths. The archeological evidence does not support the story told in the Book of Exodus and most archaeologists have therefore abandoned the investigation of Moses and the Exodus as “a fruitless pursuit”.[6

Rituals are often used to mesmerize those without a capacity for original thinking.
Why? Because many are lazy, falling back on the crap they were taught from childhood, accepting the killing and maiming “in gods name”, to protect us from “them”, those not like us.
In psychology, the term ritual is sometimes used in a technical sense for a repetitive behavior systematically used by a person to neutralize or prevent anxiety;

Project Reason | Did Moses Exist? The Myth of the Israelite Lawgiver
I was raised as a Reform Jew, but I always was taught and I always accepted that Moses was real. Much, much later, I was stunned to hear that Moses was mythical. I just had never questioned it.
Exodus is a scam to justify the myth of Israel, and the whole God is a mean dude who loves the Jews con, ’cause you know, they are special. And they used to buy lots of critters from the “priests” to kill to “offer” to “Him”, making bank for the “temple”. So they must be right, and the world must be flat too, according to them.
From the good folks at Wikipedia.org:
Moses (/ˈmoʊzɪz, -zɪs/; Hebrew: מֹשֶׁה, Modern Moshe Tiberian Mōšéh ISO 259-3 Moše; Syriac: ܡܘܫܐ Moushe; Arabic: موسى Mūsā; Greek: Mωϋσῆς Mōÿsēs in both the Septuagint and the New Testament) is a prophet in Abrahamic religions. According to the Hebrew Bible, he was a former Egyptian prince who later in life became a religious leader and lawgiver, to whom the authorship of the Torah is traditionally attributed. Also called Moshe Rabbenu in Hebrew (מֹשֶׁה רַבֵּנוּ, lit. “Moses our Teacher”), he is the most important prophet in Judaism. He is also an important prophet in Christianity and Islam, as well as a number of other faiths.
The overwhelming modern scholarly consensus is, according to William Dever, that Moses is a figure of myth, not of history. Some scholars, like Frank Cross, consider it possible that a “Moses group” might have made a transit along the route from Egypt to Edom around the 13th-12th centuries. No Egyptian sources mention Moses or the events of Exodus-Deuteronomy, nor has any archaeological evidence been discovered in Egypt or the Sinai wilderness to support the story in which he is the central figure. The story of his being placed in a wicker basket covered with tar and pitch and left among reeds on the waters of the Nile (Exodus 2:3) picks up a familiar motif in Near Eastern mythological accounts of the ruler who rises from humble origins. Thus Sargon of Akkad’s Sumerian account of his origins runs;
Apart from a few scattered references elsewhere in the Jewish scriptures, all that is known about Moses comes from the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The majority of scholars date these four books to the Persian period, 538–332 BCE.
The existence of Moses, as well as the veracity of the Exodus story, is disputed among archaeologists and Egyptologists, with experts in the field of biblical criticism citing logical inconsistencies, new archaeological evidence, historical evidence, and related origin myths in Canaanite culture.[page needed]
