Keep up with the weekly parsha with Rabbi Ravid Tilles! In this episode, Yakov is ready to return home to Canaan but he has to confront his brother, Esav, first. While waiting for this tense reunion, Yakov meets an angel who blesses him with a new name (Yisrael) and the promise of safety. Yakov and Esav embrace and seem to overcome their previous animosity so that Yakov can return in safety. But when Yakov arrives back to Canaan, there is even more drama that awaits his family.
