Yitzchok blessing Eisav through food - A Moment with Rabbi Avigdor Miller Zt"l #546
Parshas Toldos 5781


When Yitzchok our father wanted to give a blessing to his son, so he said, "asei li ma'atamim, make for me tasty things, ka'asher ahavti, like I love". Isn't that a queer thing – in order that my soul should bless you? Did Yitzchok need for his son to make tasty things for him to eat, in order that he should bless his son? If his son deserved a blessing – a prophetic blessing, it was for all future generations, a blessing from Hashem – did Yitzchok have to eat and enjoy the food? And he adds on "like I love" you hear the words of Yitzchok Avinu?


You can't disdain such a motivation. No matter how much you love your son, if your son will bring you a tasty piece of venison and it's garnished with some garlic, and some other kinds of condiments, and you'll really enjoy it, and then you'll lean back and you'll give your son a blessing that's better than you intended to give before. We don't disdain such motivations.

And therefore to bless Hashem, we are persuaded by all the good things of life.

Good Shabbos To All

This is transcribed from questions that were posed to Harav Miller by the audience at the Thursday night lectures.
