Torah: Living in the Duality Between Self & Immortality

Vayishlach 2018

Please join us for Shabbat worship and Torah study on Saturday, November 24 at 9:30 am.

Elie Wiesel taught that Jacob lived in the duality of the mundane and the celestial. During the day he talked only of his business affairs. At night, and only at night, could he, in the pitch darkness, truly struggle with the ISH, with his deep, deep self. At night Jacob spoke to the God of immortality.
