Episode 84 - Parshat Toldot: The Struggles of Yaakov Matan: One on One Parsha Podcast

    • Education

In this conversation with Rabbi Shmuel Klitsner, author of Wrestling Jacob: Deception, Identity, and Freudian Slips in Genesis, we unpack some of the underlying complexities inherent in Yaakov's relationship with his parents and the behavior patterns that develop after he steals Esav's blessing.


This week’s episode is dedicated in honour of Rabbi Zev Lewis by his family on occasion of his 87th birthday. Mazal tov!

Our episodes on the book of Breishit focus on family and interpersonal dynamics. These conversations are candid, insightful, and respectful. We aim not to psychoanalyze the biblical figures, but to learn from them as we stumble through our own beautifully messy lives.
