Better Than Nothing, I Guess...By Rabbi Jack Abramowitz
Yitzchak sent Yaakov on his way. Eisav realized how displeased his parents were with his Canaanite wives, so he decided to at least partially rectify things by marrying a member of Avraham’s family. He married Machalas, a daughter of his uncle Yishmael. It wasn’t a perfect fix, however, as this was in addition to his other wives, who continued to aggravate Yitzchak and Rivka.
