Vayatzai – And He Went Out

This week’s Torah Reading is Vayaitzai – And He Went Out. The first day of this week is Rosh Chodesh Kislev, the New Month of Kislev, the special month that has the miracle of Chanuka (and the yummy doughnuts the bakeries are beginning to make – poor Moshe up on Mt. Sinai is watching the future and seeing all these yummy sooffganeeyot – doughnuts being baked). Meanwhile, back to the Torah Reading. Right near the very beginning of the Torah Reading we read that Yakov on his way stopped to take a nap. The placed where he napped he had a dream of a ladder going up to the heavens and angels going up and down. (The angels were his escorts and there was a change of angels as he was leaving Israel to visit the land outside of Israel to find a wife as instructed by his parents). The Al-mighty promises him that the land he is sleeping on will indeed belong to him and his children (Hello out there – he was sleeping in the land of Israel. Another written documentation of who the land belongs to – the children of Israel). World please note that contained in the blessing is a blessing for you the world. Through the Jewish nation the rest of the world is blessed. It is interesting to note that when a country treats the Jewish nation in a good way, they are indeed blessed. The minute they turn against the Jewish nation, things go down hill. Look at Spain – before the Inquisition perhaps #1 but after the Spanish Inquisition and getting rid of the Jews, it was all downhill. Shortly, the Al-mighty will rebuild the 3rd Temple and the blessings will fall to those that were positive to the Jewish nation. This is a good month for it to all happen, when the 2nd Temple was rededicated and the Menorah lit and lasting the miracle 8 days.
