Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever been in a situation where someone played favorites? Were you the favored one or not? In this week’s Torah portion, Rebekah and Isaac each have favorite sons: Rebekah favors Jacob and Isaac favors Esau. How does if feel to be the favored person? And how does it feel to be the one that is not favored? What can you do when you are confronted with such a situation?
