In Parshat Vayishlach, on the evening before Jacob has to confront Esau, he is attacked by a mysterious being with whom he wrestles until dawn. Explanations abound regarding the actual nature of this being but there is a fascinating Midrash that presents two opinions: either the being appeared like a pagan or it appeared like a Torah scholar. My rebbe from Israel suggests that we can meld the two opinions as presenting two sides of the coin of temptation.

There are scenarios when the choice between good and bad are obvious but there are others when it is not so clear. The wrong path may be dressed up to look like the right way such that true discernment and inner strength are necessary to see through the ruse.

TriBeCa Torah Children's Chanukah Party 12/15 at 4pm!
