This is the place!
ú Yaakov left Be’er Sheva and went to Charan.
ú He stopped at Bet-El, and had a dream of a ladder going up to heaven, and angels going up and down that ladder.
ú Yaakov pulls the seal off the public well by himself when he sees the Beauty of Rachel
ú Lavan gives Yaakov his oldest daughter, Leah to marry first, and then, upon Yaakov’s complaint of deceit, he gives him Rachel the same week.
ú Yaakov has to work 7 years to get Leah, and then works another 7 to pay off for Rachel.
ú Rachel couldn’t bare children in the beginning, but towards the end she had Yosef
ú Yaakov put a special stick in trough of the sheep so that after they came to drink they would have sheep who weren’t white; he could get the non-white sheep, and Lavan took the white sheep.
ú Yaakov, his wives, his kids, and all his belongings run away from Lavan because they were afraid Lavan would never let them leave.
ú Rachel stole Lavan’s idles and hid them in her pillows on the camel – she sat on them while Lavan searched the tent and that’s how he couldn’t find them.
ú Lavan and Yaakov make a treaty – Brit – that they shouldn’t pass into each other’s territory in the future; the sign/monument: a hill of stones, Gal-Ed.
