Devash: Parashat Toldot


Now there's even more Torah to learn and explore!

Open the Parashat Toldot (year 1) magazine to explore: Why did Yaakov give Esav a lentil dish? How does the firstborn right work? And was Yaakov's deal with Esav fair?

Open the Parashat Toldot (year 2) magazine to explore: How did Yaakov and Esav's parents feel about each of them? Was it really so bad for Yaakov to deceive his father Yitzhak to get the special blessing? What do we learn from the wrong behaviors of our role models?

Open the Parashat Toldot (year 3) magazine to explore: When is your personality determined? Why did Esav sell his birthright? And what do round foods represent?
