Vayeitzei, Genesis 28:10-32:3
By:
Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell
The opening words of this portion, "and Jacob left," set a narrative in motion that begins with Jacob's flight from his brother Esau's fury at having been robbed of his birthright. Jacob's trickery is matched by his father-in-law Laban, who ensures that his daughter Leah is married before her younger sister, Rachel, for whom Jacob works for seven years.
