Vayishlach 5779

Rav Yaakov Kamenetsky in Emet L'Yaakov asks 4 questions on the incident with Dina and Shechem:

Why did Yaakov remain silent when he heard until his sons came home? Shimon and Levi defend their action with a question: הכזונה יעשה את אחותינו. Yaakov knew his sons were trying to deceive Shechem, why didn't he protest beforehand?

Situational ethics: how do you deal with a crooked person?
