What is the parallel between the blessings of Jacob and that which occurs on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? Why do the 10 tribes gather to the portions of Yehuda and Benjamin in the Land? Why do they need to ‘show honor’ to Judah and Benjamin – as Jacob prophesied in this portion to Judah […]
Video commentary Parashat Va’yechi – by Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz Why is the Israel Nation (today represented in Judaism) made up of Twelve Tribes? What is true unity? Each of the Twelve Tribes reflects a unique path in life and adds that to the overall completion of the nation of Israel. These 12 characteristics are reflected in […]
Texts: Genesis 12:1 – 17:27 || Isaiah 40:27 – 41:16 (Haftarah) NOTE: Kol HaTor, in its commentaries on the weekly Parashot, endeavours to search for and accentuate the Torah Messages contained in the Parashot as applicable to the main Theme of Tanach of the Return of the House of Israel, i.e. the Lost Ten Tribes of […]
The story of Joseph and his brothers, spread over four parshiyot, is the longest and most tightly scripted of all the narratives in the Torah. Nothing is there by accident; every detail counts.

You may be surprised to hear that the word “Jew” does not appear in the Five Books of Moses. The Torah refers to our people as the Children of Israel, for we are the children of our patriarch Jacob, who was given the additional name “Israel.” Israel fathered twelve children, who became the twelve tribes of Israel.

Introductory observation by Kol Hator: The Haftarah commentary that we feature here below sheds great Light on the deadlock impression that many of us would have experienced in contemplating on Parashat Toldot which deals with the Family strife that the Patriarchs of Israel experienced – that is between Isaac and Ishmael and between Jacob and […]
