For The Kids


The Adventures of Jacob

Did you know Jacob was an adventurer and a scientist? He figured out that if speckled sheep mate only with other speckled sheep, then their babies will all be speckled. That's how he became a rich man. He told his father-in-law, Laban, that he wanted "only" the speckled sheep. In Parshat Vayishlach, Jacob has to meet his big brother, Esau, and he's pretty scared. After all, he cheated his brother out of his birthright.

Now You See Me, Now You Don't

I bet Jacob would have liked to have invented one of those Invisibility Cloaks from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

Now -- well, in five years -- you can have one yourself. A professor in Japan has created an "invisibility" cloak. Unlike Harry's magical cloak, this one is high-tech camouflage. Buy it for Chanukah -- but you'll have to wait until 2008. For more really cool inventions, visit Time for Kids online (HREF="http://www.timeforkids.com">www.timeforkids.com).
