Shabbat Shalom Hanegev!
My name is Micah Rubin and I am on rel/ed general board as creative service chair.
This weeks Parasha is Vayaetzei and this is a “rap” dvar torah.
Have another fabulous, exciting, and fruitful shabbat and upcoming week!
Jacob leaves his hometown of Beersheba to go on a journey,
He feels like he’s free again, like he’s learning how to berney.
On the way, he spots a place and takes a rest,
Dreaming of a ladder in the sky, like southwest.
God appears, promises this land for his descendants,
He was overjoyed, telling god he respects it,
Like a beautiful diamond, like a pendant on your necklace
In harran he works for 7 long years,
Uncle tricks him into marrying leah, his intentions were clear
Made Jacob work another 7 years,
His love for Rachel was strong, so he married her too
They had some fun in the bedroom; he’s a crazy dude
Rachel and leah both had a couple of sons
I guess Jacob had a little too much fun
Jacob was in harran for fourteen years
Went back to the holy land, older and different, Britney spears
He finally arrives and is greeted by an angel,
This is parasha Vayaetzei I’m not telling a fable.
