Parashat Vayeishev: A Summary
This week’s portion includes four stories:
- 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.
- The indiscretion of Yehuda (Judah) with Tamar (Tamar)….
- The attempted seduction of Yosef by Potifar’s wife, which ends with her framing Yosef and having him imprisoned.
- 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).
