What We Discussed: Mikeitz

Posted on December 21, 2020

Shalom TBAY!

Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Friday night, we were treated to a D’var Torah on Mikeitz by Jody Horwitz Caplan, Community Engagement Chairperson and past president of Women’s Philanthropy for Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest. You can read it here.

On Shabbat morning, we discussed what Joseph meant when he said that God would interpret Pharaoh’s dream. For example, is it that God gives him the wisdom or that God is doing the interpreting or that God will give Pharaoh peace? Or is it setting up Pharaoh’s expectations in case Joseph isn’t as good as Pharaoh has heard, e.g., “Don’t take offense if you don’t like what I say.” You can find the Source Sheet here.

Shavua Tov!
