Parshat Vayetze: Is Lavan a Good Guy, A Bad Guy, or an OK Guy?

In this week’s class we discuss the character of Lavan.

Is he a caring father and uncle, or a liar and a cheat?  Does his character change over the 20 years Yaakov remains at his house?

How is he viewed by the text?  How is viewed by the medrash?   How do we account for the differences between the two approaches?

All this and more in this week’s class.
