A Favorite Son

a-favorite-sonThis is a gripping story of greed, betrayal, and regret. In it, Yankle describes the plot, in which his mother Becky (modeled on the biblical figure of Rebecca) conceives the idea to cheat both Esav, her other son, and her husband Isaac who is lying on his deathbed.

Yankle knows that when she tells him, “On me your sin, my son,” it is not love for him that drives her, but the need to protect her own future.
