Parshat Vayishlach: Jacob’s Transformative Wrestling Match

In this profound, animated video (04:59), award-winning novelist Dara Horn describes Jacob’s transformation from a life of manipulation to one of humility, as told in Parshat Vayishlach. Emphasizing the significance of Jacob’s mysterious nighttime wrestling partner, Horn suggests that the man with whom he wrestled was, in fact, Esau himself, allowing for their long-awaited reconciliation the following day. Useful for people of all ages and backgrounds, this video was produced by BimBam, an educational organization that creates accessible digital media about Judaism.
