The soap opera is in high gear - with a twist.
On the surface it appears that Esau hates his brother Yakov.
Yet, when they meet after twenty years they embrace as though they sincerely loved and missed each other.
Question: Didn’t Esau really want to murder his brother?
Question: Was this embrace sincere or not?
Question: Is it possible to transform one’s sworn enemy into a friend?
Question: When something bad happens to you do you blame the person who did it, or do you look deeper at why this happened to you?

Find out how what happens when someone does a good thing, without the most honorable intentions.
Find out why the Alter Rebbe had to be imprisoned.
