Bo – Come

This week’s Torah Readding is Bo – Come (to Paroh).  It contains the final, 10th plague, the killing of the 1st born and Paroh’s statement “GO”!  Also in the Parsha, Torah Reading, is the commandments of Pesach.  The child is soon going to ask, “Why is this night different from all other nights?”  He soon would have his answer (They stayed up that night).  (They were also packing for their, hopefully non stop, flight from Egypt to Israel.)  (When do we get to pack?)

Indeed that very night, Moshe and Aaron are summoned to the Palace and are told by Pharoh to GO.   Moshe then tells the Jewish nation to visit their Egyptian neighbors and ask for vessels of gold and vessels of silver and garments. (The banks and shopping malls were closed and they did not allow for a Wal-Mart in Egypt).  The Egyptians are glad to give away these items (just GO – you have done enough to us).  (GO as in good ridence, good-bye, get lost)

It would appear that our Parsha – Torah Reading should perhaps have been called GO – Laich?  Why is it called Bo – Come?

Though it does state that as we left Egypt so shall we leave our present exile, there may be some slight differences.  Note we now do have 24 hour Wal-Marts, drug stores and variety stores.  (We also do have non-stop flights to Tel Aviv).

Thus perhaps the word Bo – Come,  alludes to the final redemption where the Al-mighty will say to us – Come.  It is time for all of us to come to Jerusalem and the 3rd Temple.
