What's The Meaning Of Jacob's Ladder?

Jacob, Angels, And Connecting To God

Parshat Vayeitzei opens with Jacob on the run, encountering a vision of angels on a ladder. And it ends with… Jacob on the run, once again encountering angels. What’s this about? Are these just neat bookends to the parsha, or is there a deeper message embedded in these parallel stories?

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he explores a number of intertextual parallels that reach all the way back to an earlier story in Genesis, and uncover a fascinating insight into the life of Jacob and the meaning of his angelic encounters. By the end, you will come away with a new understanding of the meaning of Jacob’s mysterious vision of the ladder, and what that vision might mean for his family’s mission here on earth.
