About Matriarch Rachel / רחל אמנו


This great love story describes the foundation of the twelve tribes of Israel, and explains why the tribes are united (a common origin) and separate (the descendants of twelve different children of Jacob). But at a more human level it is about rivalry - between two women, the beautiful Rachel and her plain sister Leah, and between a man Jacob and his father-in-law Laban.
