This class is the twelfth in our ongoing journey through the Pentateuch and the third teaching from Eleh Toledot Ya’akov. It is based upon material from the annual reading called, VaYiggash (Genesis 44:18-47:29). The narrative contained in this section is among the most dramatic in all of biblical literature. Judah draws near to “the man, the lord of the land,” offering himself in the place of Benjamin for the sake of his father. Joseph reveals himself to his brothers and then arranges to care for his family in Egypt. The reunion of Israel and his sons seems to point to a great prophetic event – the reunion of the separated tribes of Israel in the latter days.
