Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem: Weekly Parsha Podcast, VaYigash


When Joseph and Jacob met, who cried? Joseph, Jacob or both? And why is this important? Through examining this question we will get insights into how our sages viewed these biblical characters that will help us understand the purpose of tears.

Spoiler Alert! The movie “The Good Dinosaur” will be thrown in for good measure.
