Reconciliation! In a stunning climax to 20 years of grief, Jacob and Esau finally reconcile. But there are still many more challenges awaiting Jacob, not the least of which are his own children who betray the Shechemites and defy their own father to avenge the sexual assault of their sister Dinah? Did they go too far or was justice ultimately served? And Jacob’s ultimate return home is bittersweet as he loses the love of his life with Rachel’s death. It is an amazing study in contrasts, highs and lows unlike almost any other parsha, and chock full of surprises along the way.
