Vayeshev: Joseph and Judah — Different Life Journeys

Posted by Elisha Ancselovits on December 5, 2017
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, VaYeshev

In this podcast, Rabbi Elisha Ancselovits turns towards Judah and Joseph for an alternative to desiring hopelessly to change whom we are. We discover, instead, what it means to change how we live the whom that we are.

This podcast episode is sponsored by Hersh Felson in memory of his beloved parents Sara Pearl bat Asher v’Raizel, z”l, and Zalman ben Yosef v’Riva-Leah, z”l, and in honor of his rabbi and teacher Rav Daniel Landes.
