Parshat Toldot - Chapter 27 - Verses 45-46, Chapter 28 - Verses 1-4Rivka saw with Ruach ha Kodesh (divine inspiration) that both of her sons would be buried on the same day. We see one of the rare occasions in Torah where Rivka goes to her husband Yitzhak and says she is disgusted with her life. She is talking about the wives of Esav who have caused her much pain, and she does not want her son Yaakov to marry one of these Canaanite women. Yitzhak calls in Yaakov and gives him all the blessings of Avraham and then tells him to "marry a woman like his mother", a woman from the house of Bethuel.
Today's learning is in the merit of Rav Meshulan Dovid Soleveitchik zt"l, Rabbi Yitzchok Scheiner zt"l, and Rabbi Dr. A. J. Twerski zt"l, who sadly were all petira this past week from Covid-19 in Eretz Yisroel. May their neshamas have an aliyah. Also, for the refuah shlemah of Tenokes bas Yehudit Nechama, and Beinish Getzel ben Sura Leah. May we only share good news!
