This is Bill’s commentary on the portion, Vayishlach – “and he sent.” In this portion, Jacob prepares to enter Canaan but must first encounter his adversary, Esau. Before encountering Esau, though, he must first struggle with God. It is here that Jacob becomes Israel. Some of the highlights:
- Jacob “born again” as Israel and begins a distinctive walk.
- Joseph, the last son of Israel to encounter Esau.
- Esau’s kiss.
- Much more – approximately 95 minutes
