Vayishlach

The Quest to Reestablish the Bible’s Sacred Space- Birth and Rebirth

Jacob’s struggle with the angel is a physical representation of the difficulty inherent in passing along the covenantal blessing to the next generation. For Jacob, this struggle requires him to be reborn, with a reaffirmed sense of mission and purpose, free of the clutches of both Laban and his brother Esau. This is part 8 of a 12-part series sponsored in memory of Ellen Goodstein Koplow and Joan Silverstein Meyers. To access the full series, please go to www.drisha.org/sacredspace.
