Parashat Bo

פרשת שמות

ספר שמות


God sends three last plagues to Egypt: locusts, darkness and death of the firstborn. The orders that God gives the Hebrews after the last plague, when Pharaoh finally frees them, provides the people with several of his customs, some lasting for the entire existence of the Temple of Jerusalem: the offering of first fruits (first fruits and animals); others, present with us to this day: the unleavened bread, the bitter herbs and the retelling of this story on the first night of Passover.
