Aleph Beta on Parshas Bo: Did God Really Need Ten Plagues?
Ten colorful and unique plagues…is that really so necessary? In this week’s video, Rabbi Fohrman explores the 7th plague, the transitional plague, and argues that God played off of Pharaoh’s ego to show the Pharaoh, the people of Egypt and the people of Israel, that only God is all-powerful.
