Dear Rabbi Kaplan,

Your talk on the "colorful coat" is wonderful & fascinating, as always (I have listened to this one twice), but something is troubling me. As you mentioned, the Torah says that Jacob "made" the coat for Joseph. How is this reconciled with the idea that it was made by Hashem, & then passed from Adam, to Noah, to Shem, to Nimrod, to Esau, etc...& finally to Jacob. Thank you so much for sharing your classes with us, I have listened to many of them, & have gained much knowledge & inspiration from all of them. Reply
