Parashah 7: Vayetze (He went out) Genesis 28:10 through 32:3

Shabbat shalom, mishpocah!  As always, a synopsis of this week’s Torah portion can be found on our website. This week's Torah portion, is a true "soap opera" of human behavior as we not only hear about “tithing” for the first time; but we also learn the history of Ya'akov (Jacob), the son of Yitz'chak (Isaac), who - in order to escape the wrath of Esav - was sent to live with his grandfather B'tu'el (his maternal grandfather) and told to choose a wife from the daughters of his Uncle Lavan, Rivkah's brother (who, although he was "family" did not worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob).
