Posted by Meir Schweiger on December 21, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, VaYeshev

Dreams played a central role in the life of Joseph, but they were also a characteristic feature of the life of Jacob. In this week’s parsha podcast on Vayeshev, Rabbi Meir Schweiger examines the dreams and the responses of Jacob and Joseph, and discusses how their relationship to dreams dramatically shaped the course of Jewish history.
