Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday Night’s D’Var Torah: It’s Okay to Cry.
On Saturday, we discussed the moment just before Joseph revealed himself to his brothers. He sent the Egyptians away. Was this to avoid embarrassing his brothers at what they had done? Or to ensure the Egyptians did not assume the worst of them? Or was it so that he himself would not be ashamed at expressing his emotion? Or was it so they would not hear a private conversation? What do you think? Here is a link to the Source Sheet.
