2 Kislev 5773

Esau selling his birthright
1627, Hendrick ter Brugghen

This week’s parsha is Toledot, the Hebrew word for “descendents” or “generations”. The parsha covers Genesis 25:19-28:9 and tells the tale of of the birth of Jacob and Esau and the selling of Esau’s birthright for a plate of red lentils (over-simplified explanation, sure, but the gist is correct).
