Vaera 5781 /

וָאֵרָא

Exodus 11-6:1

 

There is a section of Parashat Va-eira that might sound familiar to those who have experienced a Passover seder:  Say therefore, to the Israelite people:  I am the Eternal.  I will free you from the labors of the Egyptians and deliver you from their bondage.  I will redeem you with an outstretched arm through extraordinary chastisements.  And I will take you to be My people, and I will be your God.  And you shall know that I, the Eternal, am your God who freed you from the labors of the Egyptians.  I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and I will give it to you for a possession, I the Eternal.  (Ex. 6:6-8)
