Presentation made during Beth Torah of the Deaf’s 32nd Annual Melave Malka

Guest Speaker: Sharon Ann Dror

November 29, 2008

First, I want to say that it is wonderful to be here this evening as it has been 20 years since I came to Beth Torah of the Deaf's Melave Malka as a newlywed. I sure miss attending this event so it is an honor to be here.

This week's Torah portion: Toledot

This week's Torah portion speaks about Rivka and her pregnancy. This is the first recorded set of twins that is mentioned in Torah.

"Rivka was very worried about her pregnancy. Every time she passed a place of idol worship (Churches), Eisav would kick and then when she passed the Yeshiva, the other twin Yaakov would kick so she was told that she was carrying children who would be leaders of different nations."
