As Esau approaches with an army of men, Jacob divides his family and prays for his life.  Separated from his wives and family and all his worldly possessions, Jacob is left all alone on the other side of the River Jabbok.  After wrestling with an angel until the break of dawn, and proving his strength under the most difficult of circumstances, Jacob and the angel reach a stalemate.  Jacob refuses to let go until the angel gives him a blessing – and the angel changes his name to Israel.  In solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Israel, we celebrate our homeland with an Israeli Inspired Shabbat menu.
