For the Kids
Celebrate Our Home
At the end of Parshat Vayetze, Jacob sets out to return to his parents' home. He has spent 36 years making money and creating a family. And now he can finally look forward to seeing the land that he loves.
Many of us feel this way about Israel. We want to visit this beautiful country that holds so much of our Jewish history. It is so exciting to be there, eat the food and learn things about ancient times. But some of us just can't get there yet, so we pray for the well-being of Israel and its inhabitants.

Charan is the name of the town that Abraham left; where Isaac returned to in order to find his bride, Rebecca; and where Jacob fled to escape the wrath of Esau and marry Laban's daughters, Rachel and Leah.
Mount Ararat is the mountain on top of which Noah's ark landed. In which country can we find both of these biblical sites?
