Have you seen The Prince of Egypt? It’s the animated movie that features the Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey song “When You Believe” and tells the story of Moses. I don’t need to get into the ins and outs of religion, but the movie ends with the Israelites escaping slavery and Moses leading his people to Mount Sinai. Their freedom is celebrated yearly with the major Jewish holiday of Passover, which began at sundown on Wednesday and ends on April 13.
The traditional meal served the first two nights of Passover is called the Seder with an accompanying service. The best part of that service commemorates what led to Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt: The 10 plagues. And while you might know the names and their causes, here they are with sports references for you to better understand.
