Why did ‘Esaw reconcile with Ya‘aqov?

Greetings.

Jewish date:  2 Kislew 5771 (Parashath Wayyeṣe’).

Today’s holidays:  Dedication of St. John Lateran (Roman Catholicism), Feast Day of St. Harold “Doc” Edgerton (Church of the SubGenius), Feast Day of Saint Nectarios (Greek Orthodox Christianity).

Yes, I am not posting much these days.  My plans to move to Israel have advanced considerably.  I will be making the move on November 15-16, and getting everything ready takes a lot of time and effort.  Expect posts to be few and far between for a while.

I have begun reading The Golden Bough and am finding it considerably better than The White Goddess, but it will be some time before I finish the book.

Unfortunately, I do not really have time and energy for serious analysis of religious fallacies and misinformation in the news right now.  In lieu of that, I will leave you for the moment with a creative invitation for a bar miṣwah celebration which is roaming the Internet:



The creators of this invitation clearly know something of the events portrayed in Genesis 33, which will be read from the Torah at services that morning.

Peace.
