This Shabbat -parashat Vayishlach

This Shabbat, we read: Bereishit 32: 4-36,45    (Genesis)

Jacob is frettin.  He heard that Esav, his brother is coming towards him with about 400 men.  Last time he had anything to do with his brother Esav, Esav was wanting him dead for having taken the blessings from their father Yitzchok.

He gets an idea to send him gifts after gifts after gifts in the hopes of winning him over. Will it work?!

Mechon Mamre will say!

(This is the parasha where Jacob wrestles with the mysterious "Why-should-I-Tell-You-My-Name" angel.
