Parashat Vayeshev: A Summary

Parashat Vayeshev: A Summary

This week’s portion includes four stories:

  1. The selling of Yosef (Joseph) as a slave by his brothers – which eventually positioned Yosef to be second in command in Egypt and enabled him to save the known world from famine.
  2. The indiscretion of Yehuda (Judah) with Tamar (Tamar)….
  3. The attempted seduction of Yosef by Potifar’s wife, which ends with her framing Yosef and having him imprisoned.
  4. Yosef interprets the dreams of his fellow prisoners, the wine steward (who was reinstated and forgot to put in a good word for Yosef) and the baker (who was hanged).
