Insight 5776-11: Struggle

For Vayishlach

Not yet available on the Nishma website.

Study Question

1) Included in the concept that it was the ministering angel of Esav who Yaakov fought that night should be the recognition that even as we fight enemies from without, we are fighting enemies within. There is always a weakness within which allows a force from without to fight us. It is thus important to constantly recognize that our battle with Esav also includes a battle within ourselves.
