Hi all! Racheli here. I hope your week is going great so far - unless, of course, you’re already looking forward to the end of the week. I can’t blame you. Imagine this scene: one of our greatest spiritual leaders takes a shovel in his hands and begins to dig up the ground in preparation for a new building. Most of us would be shocked by the sight of an elderly Torah giant digging up the ground. But, the Torah tells us that this is precisely what our forefather Isaac did, when he began digging up wells. Why didn’t he have his servants do the back-breaking work?

Like, what’s the big deal? Find out in my article, Food Envy.
