Rivkah was excited, but the pregnancy itself was extremely difficult and painful. Her baby was constantly turning and kicking.
A calm walk often turned into a boxing match in her womb! Whenever Rivkah passed a Shul (Synagogue) or a Yeshiva (Jewish study hall), she felt a kick. “What a nice little Tzaddik I am carrying. This baby seems like he wants to come out right now to learn Torah,” Rivkah thought.
