Plague Ratio’s Recap

Plague Ratio’s Recap

The Haggadah in Depth, Part 16


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.
Rabbi Mendel Kaplan is the founder and spiritual leader of Chabad Flamingo in Thornhill, Ontario, he also serves as a Chaplain of the York Regional Police Service.
