Listen On


This conversation with Rabbanit Sally Mayer explores Yaakov’s adult life, uncovering the subtle ways the Torah frames his evolution and shift from a young man on the run to a mature patriarch determined to do things differently.

This Bereshit series is titled Choseness and Choices.  The book of Bereshit is propelled forward by God’s chosen representatives: Adam, Noach, Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov, but these messengers impact the world because of the choices they make.  It is the nexus between being chosen and the human choices that actualize the divine will in the world that is explored in this series.
