28:10 First Reading
Jacob left Beer-sheba and headed toward Charan.
Vayetse Ya'akov mi-Be'er Shava vayelech Charanah.
28:11 He came to a familiar place and spent the night there because the sun had already set. Taking some stones, he placed them at his head and lay down to sleep there.
Vayifga bamakom vayalen sham ki-va hashemesh vayikach me'avney hamakom vayasem mera'ashotav vayishkav bamakom hahu.



Commentary:

Beer-sheba
  Where Isaac lived, Genesis 26:33. However, some say that Isaac then lived in Hebron (see Genesis 35:27), and that Jacob had gone to Beer-sheba to pray (Ramban on Genesis 28:17). Others maintain that Isaac moved to Hebron later (Yov'loth 29:19).

Charan
  See Genesis 11:31, note on Genesis 24:10.
