Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיָּ֣קָם ׀ בַּלַּ֣יְלָה ה֗וּא וַיִּקַּ֞ח אֶת־שְׁתֵּ֤י נָשָׁיו֙ וְאֶת־שְׁתֵּ֣י שִׁפְחֹתָ֔יו וְאֶת־אַחַ֥ד עָשָׂ֖ר יְלָדָ֑יו וַֽיַּעֲבֹ֔ר אֵ֖ת מַעֲבַ֥ר יַבֹּֽק׃
That same night he arose, and taking his two wives, his two maidservants, and his eleven children, he crossed the river of the Jabbok.
Some of the women in his camp were niddah at the time, so Yakov didn’t want them to touch the sacred bottles.
As such, he hid them while helping everyone cross the river.
Unfortunately, due to being exhausted, he forgot to bring them along with him and was therefore forced to return alone to retrieve them.
(Tzedah Laderech, Siftei Cohen, Imrei Shefer)
