The Ten Plagues

Ahi viene la plaga!
Marcos as the Pharaoh, Jave as Moses

As promised.

To best relive the experience, my aunt Jave (read as in Spanish: Cha-veh) made this year’s Seder even longer but more fun than usual by putting together a small skit that included all plagues. I got to be the Pharaoh and I deserve an Oscar for my performance. See the photos after the break while you play this in the background, viewer discretion advised.

  1. What is the Pharaoh holding on the first picture?. What kind of gnat is Thelma?.

    Your family makes a very charming set of plagues.

  2. It’s a stuffed doll Torah. I don’t know why Jave brought it (it doesn’t make sense from a historical point of view) and I don’t know how I ended up holding it on that picture.

    I don’t know what kind of gnat my mom is. You have to ask her directly or I get in trouble.
