Vayetze tells the story of Jacob - his journey to Aram, his business dealings, his family life. This week I talk with Rabbi Geoff Mitelman, Founder of Sinai and Synapses, about the phenomenon of lying and dishonesty: why it's so prevalent in the Torah portion, how it plays into our political culture, and how it is born out of human nature. We also talk about his work at the intersection of science and religion.
