Heathrow Apologizes to Rabbi Asked to Remove Shoes in Airport’s Prayer Room
I don't know what to make out of this "he said - she said" - court case - Quebec's Human Rights Commission supports complaint by Jewish hair stylist.
The Vilna Gaon writes in a Chad Gadya in the Hagaddah that had Eisav received the Brachos the Shevatim would have come from him. The Seforim HaKedoshim say that Eisav's head was buried in Meoras HaMachpela because intellectually he was a great man. The Chida goes as far as saying that Eisav's mind was one thousand times greater than Yaakov's!
Reb Yeruchom says Eisav's downfall was that he felt his place was in the field rather than in Yeshiva. They both spent time in the field and in Yeshiva, but when Eisav was in Yeshiva his mind was in the field and Yaakov was the opposite. "This attitude," says, Reb Yeruchom, "is the fine defining line between the greatest Rasha and the Avos HaKedoshim."
