Bait and Switch

     Jacob served seven years for Rachel ..Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my woman, for my days are fulfilled, that I may go in to her.” Laban ..took Leah his daughter, and brought her to him. He went in to her. ..In the morning, behold, it was Leah.
     Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? Didn’t I serve with you for Rachel? ..Laban said, ..Fulfill the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you will serve with me yet seven other years.”
     Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week. He gave him Rachel his daughter as his woman. He went in also to Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
Bereshit/Genesis 29:20-30

Rachel's Tomb in the News

Rachels Tomb
A painting of Rachel's Tomb as it looked from the late 1800s to the 1990s. The brick cube with the dome was constructed around 1620 by the Ottomans; the white extension was added in 1860 by Sir Moses Montefiore. Image courtesy Committee for Rachel's Tomb.

Rachel's Tomb, a Jewish Holy Place, Was Never a Mosque
Reprint from: The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs  | Nov. 2010 | Nadav Shragai 

* UNESCO has declared that Rachel's Tomb near Jerusalem is the Bilal ibn Rabah mosque - endorsing a Palestinian claim that first surfaced only in 1996 and which ignores centuries of Muslim tradition.

* As opposed to the Temple Mount and the Cave of the Patriarchs which also serve as the location of mosques, Rachel's Tomb never served as a mosque for the Muslims. The Muslim connection to the site derives from its relation to Rachel and has no connection to Bilal ibn Rabah, Mohammed's first muezzin.

* Rachel's Tomb, located some 460 meters south of Jerusalem's municipal boundary, has been identified for over 1,700 years as the grave of the Jewish matriarch Rachel. Many generations of Jews have visited the place for prayer. The depiction of Rachel's Tomb has appeared in thousands of Jewish religious books, paintings, photographs, stamps, and works of art.

* There is a Muslim cemetery on three sides of the compound mainly belonging to the Bedouin Taamra tribe, which began burying its dead at the site due to its proximity to a holy personality. Members of the Taamra tribe harassed Jews visiting the tomb and collected extortion money to enable them to visit the site. With this background, Moses Montefiore obtained a permit from the Turks to build another room adjacent to Rachel's Tomb in 1841 to keep the Muslims away from the room of the grave and to help protect the Jews at the site.

* Jewish caretakers managed the site from 1841 until it fell into Jordanian hands in 1948. In contravention of the armistice agreement, Jordan prevented Jews from accessing the site during all the years of its rule (1948-1967). On October 19, 2010, the anniversary of her death, some 100,000 Jews visited Rachel's Tomb.

From Eliyahu

Jacob, Rachel and Leah - a very strange story, to say the least. Jacob loved Rachel, worked 7 years for her hand in marriage, then was tricked into marriage to her older sister Leah instead. Ouch!

How Jacob, this patriarch of our nation, dealt with this disturbing situation tells us a lot about his character. Perhaps you've heard it said; "When life hands you lemons turn them into lemonade!" That describes Jacob very well.

How did he do that?

By accepting YHWH's will for his life!

Join us for this sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, discussion of Genesis 29 on EBD Bet MIdrash, this Sabbath.

Blessings and Shalom!   

Eliyahu ben David
