Parsha in Depth Toldos

Nature versus nurture isn’t just a heated debate in psychology; it plays out in the Torah as well. We see it with Yitzchak and Rivka. He was raised by tzaddikim, and she by rashaim, yet both became spiritual giants. On the other side are their sons Yaakov and Eisav. How did a pair of twins raised in the same household turn out so different from one another?

Which is more important: who you are or where you came from? The answer, as you’ll find out in this Shmuz, is not so simple.
