Collection
An exploration of traditional rabbinical Peshat interpretation of the text- Pashtanai ha'Mikrah. Geared towards adult learners without a formal Jewish education. Much of the time based on alhatorah.org. Primery goal to reveal the depth and richness of the text and of the rabbinic commentaries. At times concluding with a practical lesson in life to be derived from the different approaches in the light of Chabad Chassidus.

Sale of the Birthright: A fair deal?
Questions on the morality of the sale: Did Yaakov exploit Esav's vulnerability at a moment when Esav was starving to death? Was Yaakov not guilty of extortion by purchasing the birthright for a meager pot of lentils? What is a birthright? Material or Spiritual? What is Yaakov's & Esau's view of the value  of the birthright Can one sell a birthright? Are there any Biblical parallels to our transfer and transaction? Did Yaakov ever receive the birthright which he purchased?
