Toldot 5774

Thursday, October 31, 2013

The Ramban writes that the three wells that Yitzchak dug represent the three Temples. The first two wells, named Eisek (oppression) and Sitnah (hatred), represent the first two Temples that were destroyed by the Babylonians and Romans respectively. In both time periods, the Jews were oppressed and hated by their enemies to the point where it destroyed the Temples. The third well, Rechovot (lit. roads), represents the third Temple which will be built without oppression or hatred.
