Miketz: Alienation and Recognition

Posted by Alex Israel on December 12, 2017
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, MiKetz

Miketz is the lynchpin of the Joseph story where the Torah subtly depicts a new awakening on the part of Joseph’s brothers to the pain they inflicted on their brother and their father. Rabbi Israel traces this process and demonstrates the events that generate a turnaround in the family of Israel.

This podcast is generously sponsored by Adar and Naama Margolis in memory of beloved family members z”l:

טמה (תמר) בת שלמה יוסף
שושה (שושנה) בת שאול
יוסף בן שושה
בת שבע חיה בת נועם יגאל ורנה

May their neshamot have an aliya.
