Climb Ever Higher (But Pace Yourself!) – Parshat Vayeitzei – Rabbi Aharon Chaim Larson, Denver NCSY Alumnus

Parshat Vayetizei contains a powerful image – on a hilltop which will become the site of The Temple in Jerusalem, Yaakov, the patriarch Jacob, dreams of a ladder reaching to heaven. Up and down the ladder climb scores of angels, but what does this mystical vision mean?
Rabbi Aharon Chaim Larson, an alumnus of Denver NCSY who now teaches at Yeshiva Elementary School in Miami Beach, provides interpretations of some of the symbolism.
