Genesis 6: Children, Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren
Toldot/Offspring (Genesis 25:19-28:9)
And these are the offspring of Isaac son of Abraham. (Genesis 25:19)
Refrigerator Genealogy: Mel photographed our youngest grandchildren and great-grandson for this blogart project and for updating our refrigerator album.Our offspring celebrated Shabbat Toldot at our home in Petah Tikva:
Our son Ron, Miri and their six children Or, Yahel, Shirel, Meitav, Tagel and Razel came up from Yeroham in the Negev.Our son Moshe Yehuda, Carmit and their daughter Elianne came from Kfar Saba.
Our daughter Iyrit came with her daughter Inbal and Moshe from across the street with their son Eliad, our great-grandson.Our refrigerator genealogy begins with wedding pictures of our parents: Abraham and Jeanne Alexenberg in New York and Leo and Anna Benjamin in Suriname.
The photo sequence begins with Ron, a rabbi, scientist and educator, making havdalah to mark the end of Shabbat.It is followed by photos of Meitav (10), Tagel (9), and Razel (5) with Elianne (2) and Eliad (5) in our home.
From generation to generation, they will dwell in the Land of Israel where the wilderness will rejoice over them, the desert will be glad and blossom like a lily. (Isaiah 35:1)Her wilderness will be made like Eden and her desert like a Divine garden; joy and gladness will be found there, thanksgiving and the sound of music. (Isaiah, 51:3)
