Endthought: What was Jacob Yelling When He Wrestled with the Angel?

By Joanne Greenberg

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, May 13, 1994

Joanne Greenberg states that Jews can teach America how to have deep "family" arguments and still wake up a "family" the next day. She looks to the Jewish tradition of community disagreements and disputations as an example, and believes that a healthy argument can strengthen the mind and inform the heart.
