Israel – No Longer Powerless But Powerful

PARASHAT VAYISHLACH: The connection between the 29th November and Yaakov's name change.

This week we commemorated 70 years since the United Nations vote on the partition plan, on 29 November 1947.

Israeli author Amos Oz recalls the day with a moving story about his father’s reaction to the day’s events.

The question is, what is so significant about the 29th of November – to the extent that many streets in Israel are named after the date?!

And what is the connection with this week’s parasha – Vayishlach – when Yaakov is given a new name of Yisrael (Israel)?

Watch as Rav Perez explains the amazing connection between the two.
