This week in class my 6th graders and I talked about the Torah Portion named Toldot. The portion revolved around Esau and Jacob, who are twins and the sons of Isaac and Rebecca. The story is about the birth order and how Esau is the rightful server of the Holy Temple. Jacob, the younger brother, tricks Isaac, their father, into getting the blessing for the rightful birth order. We talked about how unfair this was, and how we would feel if we were in this position. When we switched classes into our Form of Expression groups, my students made comic strips about a modern interpretation of the story. I think this helped them understand the repercussions and make the story more relevant to their own lives!
