Torah Smash! The Podcast for Nerdy Jews
Episode 17 - I. Am. Jacob …With Guest Host Micol Zimmerman Burkeman
Our guest host, Micol Zimmerman Burkeman, leads us in discussion of her favorite and least favorite representations of a hero in the bible. They may not always be fighting a villain who is the opposite of them. Sometimes it’s our own selves that need to be dealt with.
00:05:10 The first of many guesses: Micol’s fav and least fav characters?
00:12:37 A bonus guess: Torah in a musical
00:18:54 Who best represents the question, “Why Jacob?”
00:24:31 A beloved, but challenging character
00:31:15 We are not Esau and we are not Cap
00:38:03 That’s the Jewish people’s tuches
00:43:18 Jacob is the relatable figure for us
00:48:03 This enriches our experience of learning
