From The Story Of Plagues:
The Birth Of The Jewish People

RABBI RICHARD HERTZ

Special to The Jewish News

E

very Passover seder
highlights the 10
plagues brought upon
pharaoh and the Egyptians at
the time the Israelites were
slaves in ancient Egypt. The
plagues symbolize the con-
frontation between pharaoh
and Moses. The plagues were
brought about because
pharaoh's heart had been
hardened. His stubbornness
in refusing to let the children
of Israel leave Egypt resulted
in his punishment for his de-
fiance of the Will of God.
The sedra this week
describes these events. The
plagues gradually intensify
beginning with nuisances,
then the destruction of
livestock and crops and en-
ding with the death of the
first born. The Midrash tells
how God used the tactics of

THE JEWISH NEWS

Yawh" (7:17). Moses wanted
the plagues to demonstrate
God's presence in the land
even though pharaoh
vacillated. He was not con-
vinced of the power of God un-
til the final plague. Somehow,
God determined for His own
purposes that pharaoh must
resist the plagues before he
could submit to God's will.
Many interpretations of the
plagues have been made
throughout the centuries

Numbers 28:9-15,
Isaiah 66:1-24.

because of th natural condi-
tions of Egypt. Some of the
plagues can be linked to local
or seasonal phenomena. Dur-
ing its annual rise, the Nile
River is reddened by
organisms that carry in it
swarms of frogs and insects.

across the country in winter

kings against the Egyptians.
First, He cut off their water
supply (blood in the River
Nile); then He raised excite-
ment through the frogs; then
shot arrows at them (lice);
then He arrayed legions
around them (swarms); then
caused a pestilence burning
them with boils; then He sent
hosts against them (locusts);
then threw them in the
dungeons of darkness before
finally putting to death their
chiefs, namely their first
born.
A progression may be seen
in two groups of four plagues
each before the final ones, a
plague of terror and the
plague of the destroying the
first born.
Before each plague, Moses
warned pharaoh in advance
to "let my people go." Stub-
bornly, pharaoh refused so he
could dispel the Egyptian
courtiers' notion that the
power of Moses and Aaron
were simply magical. God ad-
monished pharaoh, "By this
you shall know that I am
