שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein The Destruction of the Egyptian Kingdom: The Difference between Vaera and Bo A number of changes that take place in our parasha in contrast to the previous parasha.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan "This Month Shall Be for You..." Jewish Dates A transition to counting the days of the month, the names of the months, and the years in numerical terms, and a simultaneous transition to a system that counts years and months back to the Exodus is not wildly unrealistic and impractical. It is possible to do.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Baruch Gigi "And You Shall Know / And Egypt Shall Know That I Am God:" The Dual Cause and Purpose of the Exodus Moshe's mission to Israel and to Pharaoh had dual significance:– one purpose being mentioned in chapter 3, and the other in chapter 6.

שיעורי טקסט Harav Baruch Gigi “This Month Shall Be for You the Head of Months” What are the advantages of the classic system of declaring a new moon by the testimony of witnesses, instead of the alternatives of either having a fixed calendar or following the solar calendar?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Mosheh Lichtenstein “And There Shall be a Great Cry Throughout Egypt” Our parasha describes the anguish of the Egyptians following the deaths of the firstborn. Why indeed were all of the firstborn in Egypt punished with this terrible plague, and what can we learn from it about contemporary moral dilemmas?
שיעורי טקסט Harav Yaakov Medan Different Ways to Divide the Plagues In this shiur, we consider two different ways to divide the plagues and evaluate what these divisions teach us about the nature and purpose of the plagues. In the process, we will examine the role of the plagues of pestilence and hail.
שיעורי טקסט Harav Aharon Lichtenstein "That the Torah of God May Be in Your Mouth" Wearing tefillin is meant to cause the Torah to be "in your mouth." The relation between the tefillin and this goal can be understood in two ways, depending on how we understand the word "lema'an," which can mean either "for the purpose of," or "in order to cause the result that."

Why do we have nothing at the seder to commemorate "And afterward they shall go out with great substance"?
