The Tenth Plague Unplugged: The Plague of the Firstborn (‘Makot Bechorot’)

This class introduces profound nuances of biblical nouns and verbs describing the final plague of firstborn. Careful analysis of Torah terminology serves to clarify the contradictory nature of this exceptional event that directly triggered the Exodus. See how the “stroke of midnight” becomes the key to unlocking mind-blowing mysterious Midrashic stories of what instantaneously happened at midnight, and the fallout it engendered. You’ll also learn why painting “lambs blood” on doorposts was only required then; and never again to be observed.
