David created the Repair (Y)Our World blog on March 8th, 2008, because he hypothesised that we are all Jacob's striving to become Israel's. Men and Woman have the Jacob and Israel Archetypes. The fact that these words are masculine in the Torah is irrelevant from this point of view. This hypothesis came from the sentence in the Siddur (Jewish Prayer Book) which says "And it has been said: 'The Infinite delivered Jacob, and redeemed him from the hand of one stronger than himself.' Blessed is the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel." David wrote a book on this called "The Bible as an Enlightenment Toolkit." The book was never published, but David uses it as a Reference Manual. In it he dissected the words "redeemed" and "redemption", "delivered", the phrase "the hand of one stronger than himself"; and why the word "Jacob" is sometimes used and the word "Israel" is sometimes used. For example a house is referred to as Jacob, but a home as Israel.
