Jacob's Ladder

  • Jacob\'s Ladder
Jacob left Beersheba, and went toward Haran. He came to the place and stayed there that night, because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of G-d were ascending and descending on it!
(Genesis 28)

Jacob is sleeping with a stone under his head as described in verse, having the dream in which angels are ascending and descending a ladder into heaven. Also in this dream G-d promised Jacob the land, many descendants and that all the earth would be blessed by his descendants.
