Parsha Packets for Vayishlach: Darfur, Names and Peace

Two recent and one current parsha packets for the portion of Vayishlach:

Darfur and the Jewish Soul (2008)

What's in a Jewish Name (and why we change them)? (2009)

And this years...

Waging Peace - This year we explore Jewish sources regarding the prime value of making peace - whether it between family members (Hello, Thanksgiving!), nations (say, Israelis and Palestinians), or in our communities. See stories by Carlebach and Gilad Shalit, and find out what we can learn from why the Egyptian plover bird cleans out the gums of the African crocodile.
