Jacob says to God: Who am I to warrant Your kindness, your faith in me? To continue your Brit, Covenant that started with my grandfather Avraham? Jacob is the Everyman, the archetype of feeling inadequate, insecure, unworthy despite all the objective information to the opposite. Marianne Williamson, “(if)we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” And so, the Ish, the Angel, Holds onto Jacob. Assures him while he faces his self doubt, liberates his fears, head on, and thereby becomes Yisrael, the leader, the liberator.
