Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Godwrestling is Episode 100!

Godwrestling: Halachah and Aggadah, Law and Narrative is the 100th Episode of A Dash of Drash!  

Parshat Vayishlach (Genesis 32:4 – 36:43) includes the restless story of Jacob wrestling with an angel of God.  This has been interpreted in so many ways. Jewish life, spiritual life in general, is filled with dynamic tensions between what seem to be opposing polarities.  Integrity and balance between inner and outer, law and narrative, self and other are perhaps what living lives of meaning are all about. Even if it feels like we are wrestling. Yisrael, Israel, means the one who wrestles with God, so we are all Godwrestlers!
