Parsha Talk; Toldot 2021

Come join us for Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Barry Chesler and Jeremy Kalmanofsky’s Parsha Talk. Parashat Toldot [Genesis 25:19-28:9] lives up to its opening words וְאֵלֶּה תּוֹלְדֹת יִצְחָק בֶּן־אַבְרָהָם אַבְרָהָם הוֹלִיד אֶת־יִצְחָק, [ve-elleh toldot yitzhaq ben avraham, avraham ho’lid et yitzchak, “these are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham, Avraham fathered Isaac], for it features the crucial events in Isaac’s life after the Binding of Isaac [ch. 22] and the securing of a wife for him [ch. 24]. Our conversation is spirited, focusing on the character of Isaac and the character of Esau, sometimes in comparison with Jacob. Give a listen and let us know what you think at [email protected], where comments and criticisms are always welcome. Shabbat Shalom!
