מכת ברד

In Jewish Studies we learned about the plague of hail. Moshe started the plague by throwing his hands in the air and hail came down. The parshanim (פרשנים) thought that it lasted for a month. The plague affected the Egyptians their plants and animals because the plants caught on fire. Pharaoh’s heart hardened and he didn’t let the Israelites go. In the ice there was fire but the ice didn’t melt. (יש אש על הקרח והקרח לא לנמס) רשי said that the ice and the fire made peace and it was a miracle in a miracle. (רשי אומר שהקרח והאש עושים שלום וזה נס בתוך נס) Pharaoh said that he sinned(פרעוה אמר פעם אחת שהוא חטא)
