"And Dinah, the daughter of Leah, went out." Genesis 34:1
Was she not also the daughter of Jacob? Because of her going forth she was called the daughter of Leah,
since Leah also "went out", as it is written, "And Leah went out to meet him." (Genesis 30:16) When Leah went out to
greet Jacob, there was a tinge of immodesty in her "going out," which later reflected itself in her daughter's "going
out." There is a lesson to be derived from this.
The actions of the parents, even when trivial, sometimes leave a lasting impression on their children. Parents
who deviate from Torah laws not only weaken their own faith but also cause confusion among their children. When children follow
in the footsteps of their parents, they tend to 'outdo' their parents.
