Parshas Vayishlach: The Struggle for Authenticity
Yaakov finds himself alone on the other side of the river. Attacked by a man, Yaakov battles this man all night long until the dawn breaks. Who is this man? It is none other than the spiritual representation of Eisav. But where did he come from? Doesn't the passuk tell us that Yaakov was alone?
In this shiur, Rav Burg teaches us how to do battle with your inner Eisav. The struggle for authenticity is one we encounter every day. Who are we? Yaakov or Eisav? The choise is ours but the struggle is real.
