Parshat Hashavua for Parshat Vayishlach 5781 – Yaakov and Eisav: Jews in a Non-Jewish World

This week’s lesson is with Rabbi Reuven Spolter

The Sages viewed the fateful reunion between Yaakov and Eisav as a symbol of the future relationship between Yaakov’s descendants – the Jewish people, and Eisav’s progeny, the nation of Edom. In the verse that describes their meeting in the Torah, we find some strange dots. What do they mean, and what can those dots teach us about our relationship with the world around us?

You can find the source sheets here if you’d like to print them out for the Shabbat table.
