Raize Guttman 06-19-22 (20 Sivan 5782)

Parsha Vayetzei – Ch 31, V 43 - 54

Lavan said that all Yaakov took with him belongs to him!  They  made a bris and built a pile of stones to memorialize the covenant between them.   Lavan wanted to give the spot an Aramaic name (Yegar Sahadutha) Yaakov wanted it to be a Hebrew name  (Gal ed).  The gematria of the name of the place is 213.  213 years later, the Maccabees fought war with the Greeks.

Just as Lavan was saying, its okay if you are Jewish, just follow in my ways, so the issue continued in the time of Matisyahu when the Jews followed the Greek culture and way of life.
