Jews, Czechs, Poles, Jacob and Esau is Episode 81
of A Dash of Drash
recorded in my last hour in Prague. I have had the amazing gift of time in Warsaw, Krakow, Auschwitz, Berlin, Prague and Thereseinstadt in the last couple of weeks. Of course, I have seen the remnants of absolute horrors that defy the imagination, but I have also seen hope and renewal.
In Vayishlach (Genesis 32:4-36:43), the Torah describes a reconciliation of Jacob and Esau, but the rabbis are not sure if it is really that. Does how we read this story inform how we tell the story of the destruction of European Jewry?
