#TieBlog #Vayetze #Jacob’s Ladder

28 Nov

In Parashat Vayetze, Jacob dreams of a ladder with angels ascending and descending between heaven and earth. They next morning, Jacob awakes and says, “God was in this place, and I did not even know it.” Herein lies a subtle but clear message that while other faith traditions view heavenly bliss as the ultimate religious achievement, for Judaism,  the ultimate religious expression is bringing a bit of heaven onto earth.

Rabbi Ed Bernstein

Jacob's Ladder Jacob’s Ladder

A stairway to heaven that could very well be Jacob’s ladder.
