Rooted: The Torah of Isaac – Rabbi Keilah Lebell

November 30th, 2019 — Shabbat Toldot

While Isaac’s father Abraham and son Jacob leave their childhood homes behind to strike out a new path, Isaac remains where he grew up and follows directly in his father’s footsteps. While his story may not be as adventurous or cinematic as those of Abraham and Jacob, Isaac’s commitment to his father’s legacy highlights the value of rootedness and the wisdom we can draw from our ancestors.
