The Ten Plagues begin in the Torah portion of Vaera.
Moses, accompanied by his brother, Aaron, approaches Pharaoh and asks the Egyptian ruler to let the Israelites go on a three day trip to worship God. When Pharaoh says no, God carries out the plagues to show Pharaoh his power, while Pharaoh’s magicians try to match God’s wonders.
From Blood to Hail, the first seven of the ten plagues are included in this portion.
