Rabbi Marcus – Mikketz

The Sidra is a continuation of the experiences of Joseph in Egypt. Pharaoh is troubled by his dreams and the butler reminds Pharaoh of Joseph who had successfully interpreted his dream whilst in prison. Joseph is brought before Pharaoh and interprets the dreams to his satisfaction.

Joseph is appointed Viceroy over Egypt and as predicted the seven years of prosperity are followed by seven years of famine, causing Jacob to send his sons to Egypt for food. The brothers find themselves before Joseph who recognises them and decides to test them to see whether they regret their treatment of him.
