For this special show Yishai is in Brooklyn! And being in the Diaspora colors his understanding of the Torah portion where Jacob struggles with an angel of Esav – or is it the the struggles of Jacob with Israel, the Exilic Jew fighting the redemption? The women in Jacob’s life struggle as well: Dina is raped, Rebecca dies without seeing her son come home, and Jacob’s beloved Rachel dies in childbirth before making it to Hebron. Join Rabbi Yishai for thoughts on the struggles of the founding Jewish family as they finally come to the Land of Israel.
