Design sem nome_edited.jpg

Rivkah's prayers are heard and she finally conceives after 20 years. Her pregnancy is tumultuous and God explains to her that two nations are in her womb. Esau, the firstborn, is a hunter and Yitzchak's favorite; Yaakov, Rebeca's favorite, is a man who stays in tents in search of knowledge. In a plot created by his mother, Esau sells his birthright to Yaakov, who receives all of his father's blessings. Yaakov flees to Charan to find a wife for himself in his mother's family, while Esau marries a girl from the house of Ishmael.



Toldot 5784

"And this is the lineage of Yitzchak, son of Abraham; Avraham fathered Yitzchak" (Genesis 25:19), thus begins Parashat Toldot, which will delve into the life of our patriarch Yitzchak and lead us into the narrative of the stories about Yaakov, to whom we owe the name as a people.

Toldot 5778

Quién no se compadeció alguna vez del anciano Itzjak al que su esposa engaña vilmente en complicidad con su hijo Iaakov, para lograr la bendición del primogénito? Más de una vez dijimos que Itzjak tuvo una vida sin sobresaltos ni grandes compromisos. Y para colmo, lo “engañan” de una manera que lo hace “equivocarse” y confundir a sus hijos.

Toldot 5783

“When the boys grew up, Esav became a skillful hunter, a man of the outdoors; but Yaakov became a mild man, raising livestock. And Yitzchak, who was very fond of savoring game, loved Esav; and Rivka loved Yaakov.”

Toldot 5782

"Veele toldot Yitzchak ben Avraham: Avraham holid et Yiztchak."—"And these are the generations of Yitzchak, Avraham's son: Avraham begot Yitzchak."
