CLICK THE ARROW ABOVE AND LEARN ABOUT THIS WEEK’S PARASHAH – VAYISHLACH – Saturday, December 14
As this parashah opens, Jacob’s return to the Land from Laban’s house brings him to the same boundary where he dreamed and prayed 20 years earlier. Here he will undergo the single most important event in his life, the nighttime struggle with a mysterious stranger that concludes with his being given a new name, Israel, and a new sense of who he is as reflected by that name. He will be reunited with his brother Esau, as Isaac and Ishmael were reunited late in life (25:9) and as Joseph and his brothers will be reunited in the next generation.
