Vort on Parshas Vayigash
ויאמר אלקים לישראל במראות הלילה (ויגש מו:ב)
And Hashem spoke to Yaakov in the darkness of night.
Hashem never spoke to Avraham and Yitzchak during the night, so why did Hashem speak to Yaakov at night? Since Yaakov left Eretz Yisroel to a foreign country, Hashem wanted to show Yaakov, “Even though you’re in the dark galus – exile; the ‘shechinah’ – Hashem’s presence is still is still among the Yidden!” (משך חכמה)
