Jewish Philosphy 3 – Elu v’Elu Applied: The ‘Incident’ of Dinah

JP 3 – Dinah

What happened to Dinah in the Bible; was she raped, or was the relationship consensual?

Can the disagreeing commentaries all be truth?

If the relationship was consensual, why did Shimon and Levi react so violently?

If Dinah was raped, why did Jacob not act sooner?

Plus, a possible answer to the following questions:

Why was it Shimon and Levi – two brothers who have little to no role is the rest of the Book of Genesis – who acted here?

Why did Jacob send Joseph, alone, into the hostile territory of Shechem?

If Jacob only had a bloody coat, why did he not search for Joseph?
