Devash: Parashat Vayishlah


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

Open the Parashat Vayishlah (year 1) magazine to explore: What is the sciatic nerve and why don't we eat it? Why did the angel fighting Yaakov have to leave at dawn? And what are the dots above some letters of the Torah about?

Open the Parashat Vayishlah (year 2) magazine to explore: What might it mean that Yaakov struggled with God and people? Why did Esav come to meet Yaakov with 400 people? Which whole book is read as the Haftarah? And does what you wear have an impact on how you pray?

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