toldot – “generations” – READINGS AND PREPARATIONS FOR THE PARASHA

Genesis 25:19 – 28:9; Haftarah: Malachi 1:1 – 2:7

This week’s parasha is called “generations” (in Hebrew: “Toldot”) and deals with the sons of Isaac: Esau and Jacob. We will continue our focus on the story of the Seed and try to understand Rebecca’s actions and the significance of the “heel” of Esau and the strange situation of Isaac’s blessing of Jacob/Esau, with its prophetic implications. We will also try to understand the reading from the prophets: ““Is not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the LORD. “Yet I have loved Jacob but Esau I have hated.” (Mal 1:2-3).
