The archetypal Jewish brothers are the two biblical Jewish nations: Kingdom of Yisrael in the north versus Kingdom of Yhuda in the south. Yisrael is sensual, aggressive, worldly, and savvy. Yhuda is spiritual, patient, isolationist, and inflexible. These archetypes Yisrael-versus-Yhuda reincarnate thru Jewish history: Hellenist-v-Makabi, philosopher-v-mystic, Enlightenment-v-Orthodox. Truly, when these two brothers hate eachother, the stronger brother (Yisrael) gets killed while the weaker brother (Yhuda) languishes. In the Messianic Age (King David), the two brothers succeed only by working together.
