Torah Reading Exodus 12:21–51 Hertz Chumash (pages 257-260)
5th Aliyah 12:29 – 51 ~ page 258-260
Moshe instructs the Israelite elders to paint all Jewish door posts with the blood of the Passover Lamb. The ritual of Passover is for eternity— not just for the generation of Emancipation. According to v. 12:29, the plague of the First Born occurred at midnight – then why the Jews could not leave their homes until morning (V.22)?
6th Aliyah 12:29 – 51 ~ page 258-260
The Death of the First Born devastates Egypt. Pharaoh gives “orders” for the Israelites to leave according to Moshe’s instructions from G-d. The “wealth” of Egypt is given to the Israelites. In their haste to flee, “Matzah” comes into being. Only Jews or people properly conver-ted may observe the Passover rituals.
