Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיֵּצֵ֤א הָרִאשׁוֹן֙ אַדְמוֹנִ֔י כֻּלּ֖וֹ כְּאַדֶּ֣רֶת שֵׂעָ֑ר וַיִּקְרְא֥וּ שְׁמ֖וֹ עֵשָֽׂו׃
The first one emerged red, like a hairy mantle all over; so they named him Esau.
Originally, Esav was supposed to be called “Assuy” with the letter yud in his name. But Yaakov “took” it from him and it was added to his own name as “Yaakov” instead of just “Ekev”.
In the era of the Messiah, Esav’s letter vav, will also be taken from him by Eliyahu and will also be given to Yaakov.
Esav’s name will then become “Es” and Yaakov’s name will then always be spelled in full, with the letter vav, as it is written in Vayikra 26:42: "וזכרתי את בריתי יעקוב".
