The opening words of today’s Sidra ‘Lech Lecha’ – meaning ‘Go forth’ signal our forefather Avram’s journey and the beginnings of Jewish history.
Rabbi Marcus – Vayigash
The story of Joseph continues in this week’s sedra. Joseph finally admits to his true identity and although the brothers expected retribution, Joseph shows only kindness and forgiveness to them. The brothers return to their father Jacob to tell him the news that Joseph is still alive and prepare for their big move down to Egypt to survive the famine.
