What We Discussed: Vayishlach

Posted on November 22, 2021

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: Bridging the Divide.

On Saturday, we discussed Esau’s reaction to Jacob at their first meeting after 20 years. Was his kiss planned or spontaneous… or was it the opposite of what he had intended to do? Had he intended to bite him, as some commentators have suggested? Why are there dots over the word for kiss? Was it to indicate that the kiss was real or to indicate that is was not? Here is a link to the Source Sheet. What do you think?

Shavua Tov!
