Shabbat shalom! In this Torah portion, Vaera, we find ourselves deep in the heart of the “Passover” story. It begins by God telling Moses and Aaron to go to Pharaoh to demand freedom for the Israelites. Pharaoh refuses to free the Israelite slaves, and God unleashes plagues on the Egyptians. Pharaoh promises to free the Israelites and asks Moses to stop each plague, but each time, God hardens Pharaoh’s heart. The portion ends with the plague of hail stopping and Pharaoh changing his mind once again.
Tomorrow morning, in synagogue, we will welcome Dr. Tomer Morad of the Technion Institute
