Toldos Women's Class
Does Religion Welcome Creativity?
Why Would Yitzchak be Inspired by the Destruction in Our History?
This women's class was presented on Tuesday, Parshas Toldos, 1 Kislev, 5781, November 17, 2020, live from Rabbi Jacobson's home in Monsey, NY Why would you name a child “Yaakov” because he is holding on to his brother’s heel? Why would Eisav speak of tithing salt and straw, and not any other food? Why did the vision of a destroyed Beis Hamikdash inspire Yitzchak’s blessings? Why did he want to bless Eisav? Why did Yitzchak begin his blessings, “And G-d will give you,” meaning that the first giving is insufficient? The class explores to models of leaders, mentors and teachers. It addresses to dimensions to life: when you are a student of life, and when you become a creator, finding the courage to reinvent yourself, and turning chaotic sounds into a symphony.
