Devash: Parashat Vayeishev



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

Open the Parashat Vayeishev (year 1) magazine to explore: What was special about Yosef's ketonet passim, his coat from his father? How were his brothers able to keep the secret of Yosef's sale to Egypt? And why can't we bow on stone floors?

Open the Parashat Vayeishev (year 2) magazine to explore: What do Yosef's two dreams mean, and how did his family react to his reporting of the dreams? What do we learn from Reuven who intended to save Yosef but didn't do it right then? How should we think about interpreting our own dreams? And how does Yehudah's name connect to a prayer in our Amidah?

Open the Parashat Vayeishev (year 3) magazine to explore: Why does it matter what the Ishmaelites were carrying in their caravan? And why are some words missing letters from their roots?
