Weekly Parshah Reflections – Vayishlach

In this week’s Torah portion of “Vayishlach”, we find a Jacob that is wrestling with an angel all through the night. During the battle, Jacob says “I refuse to let go until you have blessed me.” Afterwards, his name is changed to Israel – the one that wrestles with God.

Welcome to the “Raising Holy Sparks” podcast! Hope you enjoy these short weekly insights into the torah portion! This week we dive deep into the Parshah of Vayishlach.

Sources mentioned in connection with this week’s torah portion:

  • Genesis 32:27: “Then the angel said, “Let me go, for dawn is breaking.” But Jacob answered, “I will not let you go, unless you bless me.”

Thanks for listening and looking forward to being on this journey through the books of the Torah with you!
