Challah for Parashat Toldot
Jacob and Esau in the womb.
Every week, Julie Seltzer, artist and Torah scribe, bakes a challah depicting an aspect of the week's Torah portion.
And behold, twins in her womb! (Genesis 25:24)
וְהִנֵּה תוֹמִם, בְּבִטְנָהּ
The pregnant Rebekah feels the twins struggling within her. God explains, "Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples (25:23)." At birth, they are named Jacob and Esau.
