Shabbat Vaera (Ex. 6:2-9:25)

Plagues! Getcher Plagues here!

In this weeks portion Pharaoh gives us a good role model for the phrase “slow learner”. One simple request – let the Israelites go. One simple consequence – or else God is going to get medieval on your country. Each plague was saying the same thing in a different way.

And yet 6 plagues later Pharaoh is still not clueing into the concept.

So, limited only by your creativity and the category of food which you have been assigned, please bring a food which could be presented in many different ways.
