THE 10 MINUTE PARSHA

Toldot: a Conversation for the Ages

What does the parsha teach us about the nature of heritage?

Isaac Blessing Jacob, by Gioacchino Assereto

In Parshat Toldot, we are shown a conversation between father and son in which the father’s spiritual heritage is passed down. We had seen this conversation between Abraham and Isaac; however, now, we see similar textual and thematic parallels in conversations between Isaac and both Esau and Jacob. In this video, we will explore these parallels and ask, what do they teach us about the nature of heritage?
