The weekly parshah (Torah portion) is Bo (Exodus 10:1 – 13:16). After the last three devastating plagues of locusts, darkness, and the slaying of the firstborn, Pharaoh at last relents and demands that the Israelites leave, freeing them from bondage. A “mixed multitude” departs in haste, and receives the commandment to observe the Passover. “Parashat Bo is a reminder of the beautiful world that can be built in just an instant, even after destruction and heartache.”(https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/parashat-bo-the-miracle-of-mixed-multitudes/)
