Passover Fact #4 – What did Moses have to do with Passover?

About 3000 years ago the Israelites were enslaved by the Egyptians under the rule of the Pharaoh Ramses II. According to the Book of Exodus – Moses, a simple Jewish shepherd, was instructed by G-d to go to the pharaoh and demand the freedom of his people

Moses’ plea of let my people go was ignored. Moses warned the Pharaoh that G-d would send severe punishments to the people of Egypt if the Israelites were not freed. Again the Pharaoh ignored Moses’ request of freedom. In response G-d unleashed a series of 10 terrible plagues on the people of Egypt*

In response to the 10 plaques, the Pharaoh released the Jewish people from slavery.
