Vayishlach: Jacob, the Lonely Man of Faith

Avraham Avinu is known as "ha'Ivri" as the world was on one side, and he was alone on the other.

He had a loving wife, seemed to make friends easily, and was heavily involved with political leaders around the world like Pharaoh, Avimelech, and the 9 kings at war.
