5774 — VaEra: The “10 Plagues”

Posted by Neima Novetsky on December 24, 2013
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, VaEra, Pesach


The story of the ten plagues is so well known that we often take it for granted. This podcast, in which Neima Novetsky discusses parsha VaEra, will take a fresh look at the narrative, questioning many of our assumptions regarding not only what the plagues consisted of, but also how many there really were, whom they struck and why.
