It was now the middle of the day on the 15th of the month of Nissan. Moshe turned to Bnei Yisrael with the grand proclamation, “Fellow Jews, the time has come. Let us all go OUT OF EGYPT!”
There was no time to properly prepare food for their journey into the wilderness. They hurriedly left with the dough still fresh in their kneading bowls, and sacks of unleavened bread, called Matzah, upon their shoulders.
The Egyptians, after suffering from “The 10 Plagues,” were more than happy to finally get rid of Bnei Yisrael. They hurried the Jews right out of their land.
And so, over 3,000 years ago, 600,000 men, along with their wives and children, totaling over two million Jews, marched proudly out of Egypt. Not a dog barked, as they left the land of slavery, with their hearts full of joy, heads held high, and songs of praise to HaShem on their lips.
