Rabbi David Fohrman


In this video, we discuss the Torah's laws about a man with two wives, one who he loves, and one who he hates. The Bible talks about the rights of the firstborn son, who should inherit a double portion according to inheritance law. Rabbi Fohrman suggests that this legal section of text is a hint to the story of Jacob and his wives.
