TORAH PORTION

Vayishlach ... [Jacob] Sent 
Genesis 32:4−36:43 
Jacob now sent messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, in the countryside of Edom. - Genesis 32:4

SUMMARY: 
 ·  Jacob prepares to meet Esau. He wrestles with a "man," who changes Jacob's name to Israel. (32:4-33)  
· Jacob and Esau meet and part peacefully, each going his separate way. (33:1-17) 
· Dinah is raped by Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite, who was chief of the country. Jacob's sons Simeon and Levi take revenge by murdering all the males of Shechem, and Jacob's other sons join them in plundering the city. (34:1-31)  
· Rachel dies giving birth to Benjamin and is buried in Ephrah, which is present-day Bethlehem. (35:16-21)  
· Isaac dies and is buried in Hebron. Jacob's and Esau's progeny are listed. (35:22-36:43)

Mitzvah Moments



Blair Berenson - January 26, 2019
I would love your support as I "pedal for pups" for my Bar Mitzvah project! 
I will be biking 150 miles over a 4 month period to raise $1,500 for a much needed 
new shed at Bosley's Place, a nursery for homeless and orphaned neonatal and underage puppies located in Smyrna, GA. To learn more about the project and donate  to my cause, please visit my website at  https://blairbear85.wixsite.com/mysite .  
Feel free to share with family and friends...it's for the puppies!


SHARE YOUR GOOD NEWS!
...with your CNT community in future editions of  ChaiLights.  
Send a paragraph with all pertinent information and your favorite photo to communications@mynertamid.org by noon Wednesday.
