True humility

Torah from the Old City of Jerusalem.

What is true humility? We can learn it from our forefathers.

Yaakov avinu, with true humility, (not false),  asked of G-d His protection from his brother Esau.

He asked this not as a reward for his own merits, (of which he possessed many), but simply as an expression of G-d's  unreserved and outright loving kindness.
