Jewish Treats would like to thank our readers
for all of their comments. In regard to yesterday’s Treat, The Jewish Honeymoon, we received several
responses directing us to an opinion that the Torah does, indeed, allude
to Sheva Brachot. In Genesis 29, after Jacob
realizes that he has been wed to Leah instead of Rachel, and confronts
his new father-in-law, Laban’s response is: “Fulfil her [Leah’s] week,
and we will give you her [Rachel] also…” (Genesis 29:27).
