Dr. Brachi Elitzur The transition from "He gave them a possession… in the best part of the land" to "and they subjugated them and afflicted them" When God forges the Covenant Between the Parts with Avraham, He tells him of a future situation of foreignness, subjugation, and slavery.

Rav Shimon Klein Numbering the Years of Life In this shiur, we explore the first verse of the parasha – “And the days of Yaakov, the years of his life, [were] seven years and forty and a hundred years” (28:28). We will compare this formula to the parallel accounts concerning Avraham and Yitzchak, and expose the discrepancies between them. We focus on two main issues: an understanding of the status of “days,” as opposed to “years,” and the form in which the number of years is formulated. These differences invite the reader into the world of the characters involved and to understand something of the spiritual path and the inner movement of each of them. This offers a different view of lives of the forefathers. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
