parshah vayigash

This week we read Vayigash, found in Bereshit 44:18-47:27. As Sara pointed out it’s been one of those weeks (months/years/decades/lives)… It’s been quite intense here at Penguin Girl’s nest (no no eggs just balls of yarn here) and I’m just starting to catch up on the little life things that should have been done weeks ago (such as sleep and clean).

I digress, this parshah is a continuance of last week, with Yosef revealing himself to his brothers and the house of Yaakov (all told 70) descend into Egypt (Mitzrayim) and settle in the land of Goshen. Chabad’s summary may be found here.

Woah. There is a lot that could be done in attempting to explain this parshah.

I can’t. I will hopefully do some more learning on the text as the day (and shabbos) progress but do not know now where that may lead.

  1. Our Rabbi took it off on a predestination tangent. It was interesting and gave Squidette and I something to talk about on the trip home. Yes, we actually went to shabbot services last night.
