“Isaac my father, told me that he had never taken any woman to his bed but my mother. Rebecca had welcomed him with tenderness and passion when they were first married because as her groom, he treated her as though she were the Queen of Heaven and he her Consort. Their joining was the union of the sea and the sky, of the rain and the parched earth, of night and day, wind and water. Their nights were filled with stars and sighs as they played the part of Goddess and God. Their touches engendered a thousand dreams. They slept in each others arms every night that was possible from that night on. That was my father’s teaching about husbands and wives said Jacob, my father, to Leah, my mother, on their first night together.”
