Jacob and Israel

"Whenever the prophets refer to Yaakov (Jacob) or the children of Yaakov, the prophets are referring to the Jewish people located within the nations of the world. Whenever the prophets refer to Yisroel (Israel, the name not the country) or the children of Yisroel (Israel), the prophets are referring to the Jewish people located within the land of Israel."

-- as heard from Rabbi Kinstein
