Yaakov and Rachel
by Rav Amnon Bazak
The story of Yaakov’s love for Rachel, which occupies a central place in our parasha, is one of the most well-developed love stories in the Torah. In this shiur, we will focus on the significant early stages of the relationship, as depicted in the parasha.
by Harav Yaakov Medan
Why did Yaakov have to work so long for his wives? How was he fooled by the switching of the sisters? And why did he not return home after the fourteen years were over? These questions are illuminated by an examination of the parallel between Lavan and Pharaoh.

What's Happening in Israel
