The fifteenth reading from the Torah is named Bo, which means "Come."
The title comes from the first words of the first verse of the reading,
which say, "Then the LORD said to Moses, '[Come] to Pharaoh, for I have
hardened his heart"
(Exodus 10:1). The portion begins by concluding the narrative of the
plagues, the tenth of which is the slaying of the firstborn.
To avoid the plague, the Israelites are given the instructions for the
Passover sacrifice and the laws of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Pharaoh finally consents to let Israel go, and they leave Egypt.
