Omer 2016 Day 6: Rebecca


Day 6: Yesod in Chesed, Foundation in Love
"Sister, may you become thousands of myriads; may your descendants take possession of the gates of their foes!" (Genesis 24:60) 
"And Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah; he took Rebecca, and she became his wife and he loved her." (Genesis 24:67)
The first quote above was said by Rebecca's family as she left to marry Isaac. It is a blessing to all Jewish brides to this day, part of the bedeken (veiling) ceremony at Jewish weddings. The love that was the foundation of Rebecca and Isaac's relationship should be the foundation of all relationships.
