#blogExodus – Packing: The Eleventh Plague

Tuesday, 3 April 2012

That last bit in the Egypt narrative finally makes sense.

וַיֹּאפוּ אֶת-הַבָּצֵק אֲשֶׁר הוֹצִיאוּ מִמִּצְרַיִם, עֻגֹת מַצּוֹת–כִּי לֹא חָמֵץ: כִּי-גֹרְשׁוּ מִמִּצְרַיִם, וְלֹא יָכְלוּ לְהִתְמַהְמֵהַּ, וְגַם-צֵדָה, לֹא-עָשׂוּ לָהֶם
And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual. (Exodus 12:39)

At least, after driving myself berserk, trying to get five Frummies ready for the exodus back to the Promised Land.

With 600,000, I can see the wisdom in just leaving.

This post is part of a larger project, coordinated by The Ima, in preparation for our Festival of Redemption, Passover. Feel free to head over to her place and thank her for dreaming up such a creative way for us to understand the themes of Passover in our own lives.
