Raize Guttman 07-12-20 (20 Tamuz 5780)

Parsha Toldot - Chapter 25 - Verse 27 - 28
Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, cont. Halachot of going to the bathroom, and Asher Yatzar prayer.

Rashi says as long as Yaakov and Esav were small, it wasn’t so evident what they were all about, and nobody was able to pin point what was unique and special about them. They were mushed together, when they became 13, one turned to the Beis Midrash and the other turned to idol worship. Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch says Yitzhak and Rivka did not channel their middos in the right way with their education, as they raised them the same, equal. They forgot a very important principle in education. In Proverbs, it says educate a child according to his way.

Kitzur Shulchan Aruch:
1. One should use the bathroom in a modest way and wipe oneself well.
2. Every time one uses the bathroom, even a tiny drop, one must wash their hands and say the blessing, "Asher yatzar" (can be found in the siddur by the morning blessings). One should say the blessing slowly and with concentration as it is a great way to thank Hashem for your health.
