Devash: Parashat Mikeitz


Now there's even more Torah to learn and explore!

Open the Parashat Mikeitz (year 1) magazine to explore: Why did Yosef torment his brothers when they didn't know who he was? What order do we read the Sifrei Torah on Shabbat Rosh Hodesh Hanukkah? And what does Yosef's Egyptian name mean?

Open the Parashat Mikeitz (year 2) magazine to explore: Why did Yosef recognize his brothers, but they didn't recognize him? How can we understand the brothers' guilty feelings for throwing Yosef in a pit and seeing him into slavery all those years ago? What are the roles of people and God in Al Ha-Nissim? Why do we add one candle each night of Hanukkah?
