Here are the questions from our quiz on the parsha Bo

1.When Moshe went in to see Pharaoh to tell him of the next plague, the locusts, what did Pharaoh’s servants say to him?
A. Let the people go to worship Adonai their G-d, Don’t you know Egypt is being destroyed?

2.Aaron and Moshe were called back to Pharaoh’s presence and he asked them who was going with them. Moshe answered and told him the old and young, the sons and daughters, and the flocks and herds for what reason?
A. To celebrate a feast to Adonai

3. What feast do you think this was?
A. Possibly Passover, even before Adonai told Moshe?

4. Adonai then told Moshe to stretch out his hand over the land of Egypt so the locusts would invade. Adonai caused a (what kind of ) wind to blow on the land for how long?
A. East wind and it blew all day and all night and in the morning the east wind brought the locusts.

NOTE:These locusts would be from the direction of Canaan, or present day Israel. Recently ( 2004) Israel was invaded, and hadn’t seen such an invasion since 1959. These locusts came from northern Africa crossing the Red sea. Some Israelis actually ate them, and some were almost 4 inches long. The natural route is opposite what the plague brought.

5. After the locusts devoured every last bit of green plant life Pharaoh summoned Moshe and told him what?
A.I have sinned against Adonai your G-d and you. So he asked for forgiveness , 'just this once', and Adonai sent a west wind and drove them into the Sea of Suf.

12. Why do you think he told them this, and what does it have to do with the covenant made with Abraham?

The days are set forth in this order, according to the Egyptian assumption that the 29th day is that on which the conjunction of the sun and moon takes place, and on which the world was created.

The ancient Egyptian calendar was lunar, Each year had 12 months. The heliacal rising of Sirius coincides with the arrival of the highest point of river Nile flood at Memphis marking the first day of the year. The new year of the ancient Egyptians started on Meskerem 1 (MsKRm 1). This date is an Ethiopian new year signaling the end of Noah's flood. The Hebrew new years also start in Meskerem

A. Discussion

21. why was it to be roasted whole and not dressed?
A.Discussion

Note: Rabbi Robert Sternberg writes, "When Sephardim think of meat, it is roast lamb that comes to mind. Lamb is the centerpiece of the Passover seder because it was used for the Passover sacrifice in the Hebrew Temple. In this way, Sephardic Jews keep the memory of their ancient history alive at Passover time. The Ashkenazim, on the other hand, maintain that the memory of the Temple sacrifices is kept alive by refraining from eating roasted lamb at the seder rather than making it the main item on the menu."

According to the Mishnah Talmud, you may not roast a lamb for the Pesach Seder, since in the Temple era, the paschal lamb was only permitted to be slaughtered in the Temple in Jerusalem, roasted, and then eaten at a Pesach Seder in Jerusalem. Rambam comments, "Where it is accepted practice to eat roast meat on the night of Pesach one may do so, but where this is not accepted practice one may not do so and this is a decree of the sages so that people should not think that it is paschal lamb. However, everywhere it is forbidden to eat roast lamb at the seder."
