Shabbat Toledot (Gen. 25:19-28:9)

This week we delve into the character, psyche and dynamics of Isaac’s family.

  • Jacob was fairer than Esau, with a lighter complexion and smaller build.
  • Esau was apparently a lightweight when it came to study.
  • Rebecca was smart (bright) when it came to obtaining the blessing for Jacob.
  • Isaac appeared to be unenlightened when it came what was happening in his own household.

SO… limited only by your creativity and the category of food assigned, please bring a food which is “light”.
