About this Class
Following the ten plagues’ individualized enumeration and its accompanying mnemonic, the Haggadah narrative now turns to exegetic teachings of our Sages – introducing a 1 to 5 plague ratio principal. Rabbi Yosi invokes a divine “finger” versus “hand” analysis of descriptive biblical terminology about the plagues which befell Egypt in comparison to the overwhelming firepower directed against them at the Red Sea. This class sheds light on a challenging concept, clarifying a complex and easily misunderstood Torah teaching.
