Beginnings Part 7 - Lavan vs Klal Yisrael

Rabbi Haber, Shlita, propounds the intrigue that the Torah reveals concerning the shidduch (marriage match) between Yaakov and Leah & Rachel. Who IS Lavan and why does he play such a prominent part in the genealogy of the Jewish People. According to Chazal (our sages) he is a rasha (evil). Hashem planned the destiny of Avraham’s family and Nachor’s (Avraham’s brother) family. Rabbi Haber examines the story of Eliezer, the servant of Avraham who finds Rivkah as a wife for Rivkah. And he compares this story of the story of Yaakov who finds (at the direction of his father Yitzchak) his wife from the same family as his father’s wife, Rivkah.

Living For The Above

Jacob was a company man. When your not asking for yourself you can ask for whatever you'd like.

Struggle and Success

On the one hand Yaakov's life was a struggle; on the other hand Yaakov founded the Jewish nation.

Don’t Sleep There!

In our own lives, we sometimes fall asleep on hallowed ground.

Parshas Vayeitzei 2001

Not only did Yaakov teach us a way to pray, he taught us a way to live.

Everyone’s Moment of Truth

From the Torah's perspective, no-one, however wicked, is completely worthless in what he has to say. Everyone has his moment of truth.

How to get G-d to Listen

We should realize how powerful an influence for good we can have on other people's lives, and on our own, when we pray with kavana.
