Sefer Ha-Bloggadah: week 10

Now that Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret are over, we'll cover both Pesach and Shavuot in one week! The giving of Torah is a large topic, spilling over into next week. But this will be an epic week, covering 7 weeks of the narrative chronology or of the festival cycle, and 3 weeks of the annual Torah reading cycle (Bo, Beshalach, Yitro). Our source text is Exodus 12-20 (focusing on the narrative rather than the legal parts, of course).

  • Monday - 1:4:73-81 (The Exodus from Egypt)
  • Tuesday - 1:4:82-93 (The Splitting of the Red Sea and the Plunder at the Sea)
  • Wednesday - 1:5:1-12 (From Egypt into the Wilderness; The Manna)
  • Thursday - 1:5:13-24 (The Well; Clouds of Glory; Amalek's War)
  • Friday - 1:5:25-31 (The Giving of Torah)
  • Saturday/Sunday - 1:5:32-39 (The Giving of Torah)
