(ca. 1712 B.C.E. – ca. 1531 B.C.E.) One of the "Avot," the "Founding Fathers" of the Jewish People. The beloved son of Avraham and Sarah, he was the father of Yaakov and Esav, together with Rivkah, his beloved wife. He was the willing participant, as the potential sacrifice, in the trial of "Akeidat Yitzchak." In one of the conflicts between one of the "Avot," and one of the "Imahot:" namely, his wife, Rivkah, he seems to have favored Esav and she, Yaakov. She engineered a "deception" in which Yaakov "stole" the blessing of his father which was, at first glance, meant for his brother, Esav.
