Rabbi Meir Schweiger
The Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies (www.pardes.org.il)
In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger focuses on one of the parallels: Avraham has two sons – Ishmael and Isaac; Isaac has two sons – Esau and Jacob. Rabbi Schweiger examines how the tensions between each pair of sons ultimately leads to the falling apart of their respective families. The podcast concludes by showing how Jacob learns from the mistakes of his predecessors and somehow maintains the unity of the family.
May the divided House of Israel learn and find inspiration from this to bring about that illusive Family Reunion of the Lost House of 10-Israel with the House of Judah into ONE re-united 12-Tribed Kingdom.
