Rabbi Dunner takes a look at the strange story that recounts the encounter between Yaakov and the mysterious “man” that we are informed was Esav’s angel. Why did Yaakov take off on his own? Who was this mysterious individual who he encountered? Why did this wrestling match even happen? Who won, and why? There is so much about this story that makes no sense. Through textual analysis, and with the help of selected commentaries, Rabbi Dunner helps to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
