The Frog Plague and Kiddush Hashem

Did you know that the mitzvah of kiddush hashem was strengthened by the actions of the frogs in Egypt?

Frogs and Kiddush Hashem

The Talmud tells us that Chanania, Mishael and Azaria took a lesson from the frogs. They were unsure whether they should bow down to idols or be thrown into a hot furnace, but then they remembered that the frogs who plagued Egypt jumped willingly into hot furnaces in order to demonstrate the greatness of Hashem. They understood that they too must forfeit their lives al kiddush hashem.

Chol hamoed Pesach is an excellent time to make a kiddush hashem on family and group trips.
