Posted on | November 4, 2010 | By Administrator | Comments Off

Have you checked out Aish on the Parsha recently. Here’s the wide variety for Parshas Toldot.

Rabbi Weisz who is listed under Mayonot on the Aish page is a long time Beyond BT favorite. In this piece called the First War of the Worlds he highlights how Judaism and Christianity are rooted in the world views of Yaakov and Esau.
