Shabbat Shalom

28 Cheshvan 5774

Candle lighting time on the South End is at 5:33 for Shabbat; 6:40 tomorrow for Havdalah.

This week’s parsha is Toledot, the Hebrew word for “descendents” or “generations”. The parsha (Genesis 25:19-28:9 ) 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).

You can learn more about this week’s parsha from the following sources:
