Twenty years had passed since Yitzchak and Rivkah got married, but they still had no children. They both prayed, day after day, for a child who would be the next link in the great chain, continuing the holy traditions of Avraham and Sarah.
Finally, after so many years of waiting, Rivkah found out the good news. “At last! Oh boy! What a joy!”
Yitzchak and Rivkah were both praying from the bottom of their hearts to HaShem for a baby. They were what you may call, “The Prayer Experts.”
In fact, if you add up numerical value of their names, you’ll arrive at 515, the exact same value of the word Tefilah, תפלה, which means prayer in Hebrew.
Rivkah and Yitzchak were two people, but they added up to one תפלה, which means just one prayer.
Why is that? Because they both had a singular purpose in mind – to bear a child who would be worthy to be the ancestor of all Jewish people to come, including you and me!
