This Week's Torah Portion

Vayigash And [Judah] Approached [Joseph] 
Genesis 44:18−47:27

Judah now approached him and said, "By your leave, my lord, please give your servant a hearing, and do not let your anger flare up at your servant--for you are like Pharaoh". - Genesis 48:18


Summary:

  • Judah pleads with Joseph to free Benjamin and offers himself as a replacement. (44:18-34)

  • Joseph reveals himself to his brothers and forgives them for selling him into slavery. (45:1-15)

  • Although the famine still rages, Pharaoh invites Joseph's family to "live off the fat of the land." (45:16-24)

  • Jacob learns that Joseph is still alive and, with God's blessing, goes to Egypt. (45:25-46:33)

  • Pharaoh permits Joseph's family to settle in Goshen. Pharaoh then meets with Jacob. (47:1-12)

  • With the famine increasing, Joseph designs a plan for the Egyptians to trade their livestock and land for food. The Israelites thrive in Egypt. (47:13-27)

IF YOU WOULD LIKE ANYTHING ADDED
TO OUR ANNOUNCEMENTS,
PLEASE LET THE RABBI KNOW BY WEDNESDAY EACH WEEK.


HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is to guarantee patient privacy, which is good for the patient because it protects their confidentiality, but not very helpful when the Temple is trying to find patients. Please do not assume that we know you are in the hospital or that the Chaplains Office has contacted the Temple or the Rabbi, even if a chaplain has visited you. PLEASE, I want to be able to visit you. I want to be able to offer you the solace and perspective of our tradition. The Temple wants to let you know that we care, but that can only happen when we know where you are. 

Thank you,

Rabbi Raina Siroty
Congregation Gemiluth Chassodim | Rabbi Cantor Raina Siroty | 318.445.3655
