Aseret Makot, The Ten Plagues, is a round whose text consists of the Hebrew names of the ten plagues described in the Bible that descended on the Egyptians in a terrible crescendo before the Pharoh agreed to free the Jews from slavery. The story of this holiday, known as Passover, is described in the Haggadah.
