#### Abstract

We prove that the $p$th Hecke operator on the Morava $E$-cohomology of a space is congruent to the Frobenius $\mathrm{mod} \: p$. This is a generalization of the fact that the $p$th Adams operation on the complex $K$-theory of a space is congruent to the Frobenius $\mathrm{mod} \: p$. The proof implies that the $p$th Hecke operator may be used to test Rezk’s congruence criterion.
