11.02.2013

Занятие по недельной главе Торы проходит в нашей общине регулярно. В сезоне 2012-2013 – по вторникам, 19:40 – 21:00.

Раввин общины, Йосеф Херсонский разработал формат этого занятия:

– Мини-урок (15-20 минут) помощника раввина

– Часовое занятие раввина, в котором участникам предлагается выбрать наиболее интересующие их темы из сюжета недельной главы. В начале занятия раввин делает общий обзор главы и предлагает участникам список тем, упомянутых в главе + пояснения, каким образом эта тема актуальна сегодня. Каждый участник озвучивает 3 наиболее интересующие его темы. Рейтинг интересующих тем формирует программу занятия.

Данное занятие провел полностью помощник раввина ввиду того, что раввин был в отъезде.

Rav Joseph Pardes

Raw Frand zu Parschat Wajigasch 5773

Die Identität eines Juden

Die Torah berichtet, dass Josef dem Ja’akow mit Speise beladene Wagen (Agalot) schickte. Damit wollte er beweisen, dass er noch lebte [Bereschit 45:21]. Ein berühmter Midrasch erklärt, dass Ja’akow wegen diesem Geschenk davon überzeugt wurde, dass Josef lebte. Dieses Geschenk entsprach nämlich einem Wortspiel. Das Wort „Agalah“ (Wagen) entspricht dem Wort „Eglah“ (Kalb), im Hebräischen die gleichen Konsonanten (in der Tora die gleichen Buchstaben). „Agalah“ symbolisiert hier „Eglah“.  Eglah erinnert an das halachische Subjekt von Eglah Arufah (das Kalb, dem man das Genick bricht, wenn ein Toter gefunden wird) [Dewarim 21:1-9]. Als sie getrennt wurden, waren Ja’akow und Josef gerade dabei, dieses Thema, Eglah Arufah, zu studieren.

Als er die Wagen sah, erkannte Ja’akow, dass Josef lebte. Er hatte nicht den Schatten eines Zweifels [45:27]. Jakob verband die Agalot augenblicklich mit Eglah Arufah, dem letzten Thema, dass sie miteinander studiert hatten.

Ich möchte eine hochinteressante Geschichte erzählen, die zur Zeit des Gaon von Wilna geschah. Sie handelt von einem frisch verheirateten Paar. Unmittelbar nach der Hochzeit verschwand der Ehemann auf Nimmerwiedersehen. Die Frau war eine Agunah (eine „Eingeschlossene“); sie konnte nicht wieder heiraten, denn sie war immer noch mit ihrem verschwundenen Ehemann verheiratet und das Bet Din konnte nicht in Erfahrung bringen, ob ihr Ehemann noch lebte.

Dreissig Jahre später kam einer in die Stadt, ging zu dieser Frau und erklärte: “Ich bin zurück.” Die halachische Frage war: „Glauben wir diesem Burschen, der behauptete ihr Ehemann zu sein, oder nicht?“ Im Verlauf von dreissig Jahren verändert sich jeder, aber trotzdem konnte niemand den Verschwundenen wieder erkennen. Da es sich um eine Ejschet Isch (eine verheiratete Frau) handelte, war das Problem ernst.

Andererseits kam dieser Bursche nicht unvorbereitet. Dieser Mann berichtete der Frau von Dingen, die nur der Ehemann wissen konnte. Er erzählte ihr alles über die Hochzeit. Sogar intimes wusste er über sie. Der Mann konnte scheinbar unwiderlegbar beweisen, dass er ihr Ehemann war. Die Einzelheiten, die er erzählte, waren alles Dinge, welche klar nur der Ehemann wissen konnte.

Man fragte den Gaon von Wilna an, ob man diesem Mann glauben dürfe oder nicht. Der Wilnaer Gaon sagte Ihnen, sie sollten den Mann nach Schul (in die Synagoge) führen. Dort sollten sie ihn bitten, seinen Makom kewua (seinen festen Synagogenplatz), wo er immer gebetet hatte, zu zeigen. Sie nahmen den Mann nach Schul und baten ihn, seinen festen Synagogenplatz zu zeigen. Er war dazu nicht imstande. Auf das hin entlarvte ihn der Wilnaer Gaon als Lügner und Betrüger. Wieso?

Diese Person wollte die arme Frau austricksen. Offensichtlich hatte er mit ihrem echten Ehemann gesprochen und sich bemüht, viele „wichtige“ Einzelheiten herauszufinden. Da er aber kein ehrlicher, g’ttesfürchtiger Jude war, machte er sich nicht die Mühe mehr über die geistigen Dinge (Dewarim SchebiKeduscha) ausfindig zu machen. Der Mann kannte die Farbe des Hochzeitsanzugs, die Farbe der Blumen oder den Namen der Musikkapelle, alles oberflächliche Dinge. Eine Person, die ihr Judentum nicht ernst nimmt, wird aber an etwas nicht denken: Dewarim SchebiKeduscha, die heiligen Dinge im Leben eines Juden.

Die Farbe unseres Autos ist nicht das wichtigste in unserem Leben. Wichtig in unserem Leben ist, wo wir in der Synagoge beten, welches Talmudkapitel wir lernen usw.  Deshalb wusste der Gaon, dass dieser Mensch ein Schauspieler war und nicht der echte Ehemann.

Wir lernen diese Lektion von Ja’akow und Josef. Als Josef seinem Vater einen unwiderlegbaren Beweis, dass er wirklich Josef sei, geben wollte, war sein klarstes Beweisstück das halachische Thema, das sie zusammen gelernt hatten. Welches „Daf“ (Talmudseite), welche „Sugjah“ (talmudisches Thema) lernten sie am Tag, an dem Josef wegging? Dies ist die Art und Weise, wie sich ernsthafte Juden ausweisen. Nicht mittels dem Ort, wo sie zusammen Fischen gingen, nicht durch den Platz wo sie miteinander Fussball spielten oder durch andere oberflächliche Aspekte des Lebens. Josef wies sich gegenüber Jakob mit dem Wesentlichen der jüdischen Identität aus: dem Thema aus der Torah, welches sie zuletzt besprochen hatten.

Der Gaon von Wilna hatte keine wundersame Eingebung. Es handelte sich ganz einfach um gesunden Menschenverstand. Ein Jude weiss, wo er betet und wo er lernt, weil dies der Kern seines Lebens ist.

Hay algo muy especial con respecto a los mandamientos, acerca del concepto de ordenar, mandar. Ordenar, en primer lugar implica reinado, ¿Quién da órdenes, quien manda? El rey, un rey ordena. Entonces, el hecho que toda la Torá sea un libro de preceptos, quiere decir que todo su propósito es el de revelar, manifestar el reino de Dios en la tierra, que Hashem Hu Hamelej, que Dios es el Rey, Él ordena y nosotros cumplimos, lo que Él ordena nosotros lo hacemos.

How is doing a voluntary mitzvah like wearing a snazzy outfit? Parshat …. Rabbi Ari Strulowitz

Parshat Vayikra opens the third book of Torah by outlining korban, burnt offerings. Rabbi Ari Strulowitz of Midwest NCSY, interprets the wording of the second verse: “a man from AMONG you brings a sacrifice.”
While some mitzvot are must-do’s but many others are voluntary, and so perhaps this sacrifice is a voluntary one. Why does this matter? Find out!

PARENTING: On Loan

On Loan
Iyar 20, 5774 · May 20, 2014

 

Children have a way of pushing buttons.

And when they push a certain button at a certain time with a certain degree of intensity, the result may be the desire to give that child the punishment he deserves.

A chassid once wrote to the Rebbe that he had a hard time restraining himself from hitting his child, even though that was not the way he wanted to raise him.

The Rebbe responded, “Imagine if this was your neighbor’s child. Would you ever consider lifting your hand to another’s child?”

In truth, our children are not our own. They were entrusted to our care as a loan, given to us by G‑d to raise and care for.

When Chanah, the mother of Samuel the prophet, was thanking G‑d for her child after many years of infertility, she said, “This is the child that I prayed for, for G‑d has given me what I asked for.” The Hebrew word for asked, sha’alah, can also mean “borrowed.”

Chana was cognizant that this precious son that she was to care for was not her own, but rather a loan that G‑d had entrusted to her.

Thoughtstream: Today, I will take care of my child carefully and lovingly, for G‑d has entrusted me with the most precious loan.

(Adapted from Torat Menachem 5744, vol. 1, p. 159.)

ONCE UPON A CHASID: A Chassidic Kiss (Vayigash)

Tevet 3, 5775 · December 25, 2014
A Chassidic Kiss

Joseph harnessed his chariot and rode to Goshen toward his father; he showed himself to him, fell upon his neck, and wept… (46:29)

But Jacob did not embrace Joseph and did not kiss him; our sages tell us that he was reading the ‘Sh’mah’.

– Rashi’s commentary

Jacob knew that never in his life would his love be aroused as it was at that moment, the moment of reunion with his most beloved son after 22 years of anguish and loss. So he chose to utilize this tremendous welling of emotion to serve His Creator, channeling it to fuel his love for G-d.

– chassidic saying.

In 1892, Rabbi Sholom DovBer of Lubavitch presented his twelve-year-old son, Yosef Yitzchok, with the manuscript of a ma’amar (a discourse of chassidic teachings) entitled Moh Rabu Maasechah1and said: “This is a chassidic kiss. In time I will explain.” Four years later, he related the following incident to him:

The year was 1884. Late one night, Rabbi Sholom DovBer was studying with Rabbi Jacob Mordechai Bezfolov. Rabbi Sholom DovBer’s family then lived in two rooms: one served as the bedroom, the other, as Rabbi Sholom DovBer’s study. In this room also stood the cot of his only child, the four-year-old Yosef Yitzchok.

Little Yosef Yitzchok was an extremely beautiful child with a delicate and radiant face. Rabbi Jacob Mordechai, enthralled by the sleeping child, commented that the radiance of the child’s countenance must reflect an inner purity of mind.

Rabbi Sholom DovBer was moved by a strong desire to kiss his son. But at that very moment he thought of the gold and silver that were used to beautify theHoly Temple in Jerusalem, transforming physical substances into something holy and spiritual. He decided to direct his overwhelming feelings of love for his son into a more spiritual gift: he would give his son a ma’amar instead of a kiss. He sat down and wrote ‘Moh Rabu Maasechah.’

GARDEN OF TORAH: Inspiring Change (Vayigash)

Inspiring Change
Vayigash; Genesis 44:18-47:27

Adapted from
Sefer HaSichos 5750, p. 212ff;
Sefer HaSichos 5751, p. 206ff

Making a Potential Kinetic

In his Siddur, the Alter Rebbe writes:1

It is proper to say before prayer: I hereby accept upon myself the positive commandment,2 “Love your fellowman as yourself.”

Showing love for one’s fellowman prepares a person to intensify his relationship with G-d. For a genuine commitment to all of mankind requires true selflessness,3 and this is the approach which should characterize our relationship with G-d. But why is a verbal declaration required? Why isn’t the emphasis placed on contemplating the concept, rather than making a statement?

It can be explained that on an essential level, oneness exists among our entire people: “They are all complementary, and share one Father. Because of this common root in the One G-d, all Israel are called ‘brothers’ in the full sense of the word.”

All too often, however, that oneness is not manifest in a person’s relations with his fellowmen. By actually making a statement, a person has activated this potential, bringing it into expression within our material world.4

The importance of this statement exceeds by far its few measured words. The objective is that one deed lead to another, in a self-reinforcing cycle that will motivate a person to express love for his fellowmen and stir his fellowmen to reciprocate in kind. Making a statement of purpose opens a channel to our inner feelings of love,5 with the intent that these feelings will become manifest in activity on behalf of others.

Bonding Power

A similar paradigm applies to this week’s Torah reading. Vayigash means: “And he approached;” Yehudah approached Yosef.6 But Yehudah’s approach was intended to establish more than physical closeness. Rashi explains7 that Yehudah told Yosef: “May my words enter your ears,” i.e., he desired to initiate communication.

Yehudah’s deed had tremendous repercussions.8 As the narrative continues, “Yosef could no longer restrain himself.”9 After years of separation, the brothers embraced, kissed each other, and spoke freely.10 Yaakov’s sons returned to him with the message that Yosef was alive and Yaakov descended to Egypt to join him, establishing oneness and unity between all Jews.

From the Inside Out

The spiral touched off by Yehudah’s approach to Yosef had larger ramifications.11 TheZohar12 understands their union as symbolizing the approach of the physical world to the spiritual world.

To explain: In essence, the world at large is at one with G-d. This is the meaning of the phrase “G-d is one” in the Shema13 not merely that there is one G-d, but that all existence is at one with Him.14 Nevertheless, the oneness that pervades creation is not openly revealed. On the contrary, the world appears to exist as a collection of discrete entities.

Expressing the inner oneness that exists between people serves as a catalyst to achieve oneness in the world at large, allowing the material world to serve as a medium for the expression of spiritual truth. This was reflected in the conduct of Yaakov and his sons in Egypt. Although settling in Egypt involved a descent into exile, and Egypt was a morally depraved land,15 Yaakov and his sons established a model of spiritually oriented existence there.16 Pharaoh granted them the finest portion of the land,17 promising “the best of Egypt will be yours.”18

Yaakov and his sons made maximum use of this opportunity. Indeed, our Rabbis explain19 that these were Yaakov’s best years. Throughout his life, he endeavored to express spiritual values within the day-to-day realities of ordinary living. In Egypt, he was given the ability to bring this ideal to fruition.

Uncovering Identity

The relevance of the above concepts is not confined to periods when G-dliness is openly apparent. Quite the contrary, the narrative begins in the ultimate of concealment. Yehudah did not know he was speaking to Yosef. He thought he was addressing the Egyptian viceroy, and he had to plead for Binyamin’s freedom after the youth had been discovered in a compromising situation. Despite the weakness of his position, Yehudah advanced in the direction of oneness,20 and his approach led to the revelation that the Egyptian ruler was Yosef.

Similarly, although today Jews may need the assistance of non-Jewish authorities for their security, they must realize that there is a subtle, inner dynamic at work. It is not an Egyptian who charts our destiny; “The hearts of kings and officers are in the hands of G-d.”21 He and not the non-Jewish powers controls the fate of our people as a whole, and of each individual in particular.

Our conduct and choice of priorities should be structured accordingly. There is no need to accept the standards of the world at large. By emulating Yehudah’s example and striving toward oneness within our present situation, we can initiate a sequence that will lead to the open expression of our world’s G-dly nature.

Egypt is not the End of the Journey

During his journey to Egypt, Yaakov had a vision in which G-d reassured him:22 “Do not fear to descend to Egypt,” and promised “I will descend to Egypt with you and I will surely have you ascend.” Although Yaakov realized what he could achieve in Egypt, he was reluctant to descend there. For prosperity in exile even prosperity that is used to create a model of spiritually oriented existence is not the goal of a Jew’s life.

A Jew’s true life is in Eretz Yisrael and more particularly, Eretz Yisrael as it will exist in the Era of the Redemption. This is the promise Yaakov received from G-d that his descendants would be redeemed from Egypt and live in Eretz Yisrael together withMashiach.23

Why then did Yaakov descend to Egypt? Because he appreciated that the Redemption must be brought about by the Divine service of man. The establishment of a spiritually oriented society amidst material prosperity provides man with a foretaste of the Redemption, and prepares the world for the time when redemption will become manifest. Yaakov’s life in Egypt was dedicated to this purpose.

The theme of redemption is underscored by the Haftorah, which speaks about the ultimate union24 of Yosef and Yehudah:25 “I will take the children of Israel from among the nations… and bring them to their own land. I will make them one nation in the land…. No longer will they be two nations, no longer divided into two kingdoms.” And it promises:26 “And My servant David will be their prince forever,” for it is in the Era of the Redemption that the selfless striving for unity will receive the prominence it deserves.

PARSHAH IN A NUTSHELL: Vayigash

Vayigash
Genesis 44:18-47:27

Judah approaches Joseph to plead for the release of Benjamin, offering himself as a slave to the Egyptian ruler in Benjamin’s stead. Upon witnessing his brothers’ loyalty to one another, Joseph reveals his identity to them. “I am Joseph,” he declares. “Is my father still alive?”

The brothers are overcome by shame andremorse, but Joseph comforts them. “It was not you who sent me here,” he says to them, “but G-d. It has all been ordained from Above to save us, and the entire region, from famine.”

The brothers rush back to Canaan with the news. Jacob comes to Egypt with his sons and their families — seventy souls in all — and is reunited with his beloved son after 22 years. On his way to Egypt he receives the Divine promise: “Fear not to go down to Egypt; for I will there make of you a great nation. I will go down with you into Egypt, and I will also surely bring you up again.”

Joseph gathers the wealth of Egypt by selling food and seed during the famine. Pharaoh gives Jacob’s family the fertile county of Goshen to settle, and the children of Israel prosper in their Egyptian exile.

WEEKLY ALIYOT: Parshat Vayigash

Tevet 2, 5775 · December 24, 2014
Vayigash Aliya Summary

General Overview: In this week’s Torah treading, Vayigash, Judah responds to Joseph’s demand that Benjamin remain enslaved in Egypt, pleading to be taken as a substitute. Joseph reveals his identity to his brothers. At Joseph’s request, Jacob and his family come down to Egypt.


First Aliyah: In the end of last week’s Torah reading, Joseph demanded that Benjamin remain behind in Egypt as his slave. This week’s reading opens with Judah approaching Joseph and appealed to him to allow Benjamin to return to his father Jacob in Canaan. He spoke of Jacob’s reluctance to allow Benjamin – Rachel’s only remaining child – to make the trip to Egypt, and the great love Jacob harbored for his youngest son.


Second Aliyah: Judah continued: “When [Jacob] sees that the boy is gone, he will die.” He explained to Joseph that he, Judah, had taken personal responsibility that Benjamin would return unharmed to Canaan. And as such, he asked to remain as a slave in stead of Benjamin. At that point, Joseph could not restrain himself any longer. He asked all the Egyptians present to leave the room, and he revealed his identity to his brothers: “I am Joseph! Is my father still alive?!” He then reassured them, and asked them not to be upset about selling him into slavery: “For it was to preserve life that G‑d sent me before you. For . . . another five years there will be neither plowing nor harvest, and G‑d sent me before you to ensure your survival in the land…”


Third Aliyah: Joseph directed his brothers to quickly return to Canaan and bring Jacob and their families back to Egypt, where Joseph promised to provide them with food until the famine ends. Joseph embraced his brothers and cried. Pharaoh was informed that Joseph’s family had arrived, and he, too, instructed them to come to Egypt where he would give them the “best of the land.” The brothers went to Canaan – laden with gifts from Pharaoh and Joseph – and informed Jacob that Joseph was alive, indeed he ruled over all of Egypt. “And the spirit of their father Jacob was revived.”


Fourth Aliyah: Jacob and his entire family left Canaan and headed to Egypt. En route they stopped in Beersheba, where G‑d told Jacob not to fear going to Egypt, for it is there that he will be made into a great nation. Furthermore G‑d told him: “I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up.”


Fifth Aliyah: This section names the seventy members of Jacob’s family that went to Egypt.


Sixth Aliyah: Jacob arrived in Egypt, to the province of Goshen that Pharaoh had allotted his family. Joseph went there to greet his father. Joseph prepared his family for meeting Pharaoh, and instructed his brothers to tell Pharaoh that they are shepherds, who only wish to tend to their flocks in Goshen until the famine ends. Indeed the brothers followed this script, and Pharaoh acceded to their request. Jacob was then brought before Pharaoh, and Jacob blessed him.


Seventh Aliyah: While Joseph supplied his family with food, the rest of Egypt was in a desperate plight. First they expended all their money in exchange for food that Joseph sold them. Then their money ran out, and they paid for provisions with their cattle. Finally, when they had no money or chattel left, they sold their land and themselves to Pharaoh into servitude in exchange for provisions. Meanwhile, in the land of Goshen, Jacob’s family prospered and multiplied exceedingly.

TORAH STUDIES: Parshat Vayigash

Tevet 2, 5775 · December 24, 2014
Vayigash

Not only did Joseph save the Egyptians from the seven years of famine, by arranging for grain to be stored during the previous years, but he also provided for his family during that time, as Sidra Vayigash tells us, despite the harm that his brothers had earlier sought to do him. Because of this, the entire Jewish nation is called by his name in one of the Psalms. The Rebbe investigates the underlying meaning of this appellation, and of a Midrash which makes three requests to G-d to treat Israel in the way that Joseph treated his brothers.

1. Joseph the Provider

“And Joseph supported his Father and his brothers and all his Father’s household, according to their little ones.”1

Amongst the many things that the Torah tells us about the relations between Joseph and his brothers, it specifically mentions that he sustained them and their families: And there is no detail of the stories of the Torah which does not have a profound meaning for us, waiting to be uncovered.

This particular act of Joseph’s is so esteemed that because of it, the entire Jewish nation is called, in perpetuity, by his name, as we find in the Psalms: “He (G-d) leads Joseph like a flock.”2 His act, as it were, is a permanent heritage to us.

2. The Comment of The Midrash

There is a Midrashic commentary on this verse from the Psalms,3 to the effect that G-d not only leads His people (who are called “Joseph”) but that He does so in the manner of Joseph: “Just as he stored food from the years of plenty as provision for the period of famine, so may G-d store up blessings for us from this world to enjoy in the world to come.

“Just as Joseph provided for each according to his deeds, so may G-d sustain us according to our deeds.

“Rabbi Menachem said in the name of Rabbi Abin: Just as Joseph’s brothers acted badly towards him, but he repaid them with good, so we act badly towards You (G-d)—and may You bestow good on us in return.”

Now, this Midrash is puzzling in a number of ways:

(i) When Joseph laid up food from the years of plenty, had he not done so, it would have gone to waste. But what analogy is there with our good deeds in this world? They will not go to waste, so why need they be “stored up” for the future life?

(ii) How can we compare this world to the time of plenty, and the next to the years of famine, when we are told that this world is only a “vestibule” leading to the “hall” of the world to come?4

(iii) Joseph’s virtue was that he bestowed good on those who had done bad to him. How can the Midrash state, therefore, that he “provided for each according to his deeds” (and not “according to his needs”)?

(iv) Why, in any case, did the Midrash need to request that G-d sustain us according to our deeds: For this is no more than the strict requirements of the law, and we did not need to infer it from the conduct of Joseph?

3. The Blessings of This World and the Next

We can understand the first request of the Midrash, that G-d stores blessings for us from the “years of plenty” of this world to enjoy in the “years of famine” of the world to come, once we realize that the nature of our reward in the world to come is a revelation of what our acts have achieved in this world—an outflowing of G-d’s essential presence. The world to come is thus, as it were, a “time of famine”—in it we are sustained by a flow of spiritual life that we brought about in the “time of plenty,” in this world. And though we find it written in the Mishnah that “an hour of blissfulness of spirit in the world to come is better than all the life of this world,”5 this is only from the point of view of man, who finds his reward in the future life. From the point of view of G-d and of the Divine purpose of human existence, “an hour of repentance and good deeds in this world is better than all the life in the world to come.” Only here can we fulfill our task, and create the spiritual pleasures that will be revealed to us in the world to come.

Now, if we were to follow the logic of the strict requirements of the law, it could be said that many of the occasions when we obey G-d’s will, we do so for ulterior motives. We do not align ourselves with the essence of the commandment, which seeks no other reward than the act itself. Therefore, though “the essential thing is the act,”6 and though such acts do indeed bring about an outflowing of G-d’s essence, surely they should not be rewarded in the world to come by a revelation of that essence?

So, when we ask (in the second request of the Midrash): “Sustain us according to our deeds (and not according to our motives)” we are not merely asking G-d to follow the strict requirement of the law. Instead we are asking that He look only at our outward acts, and not to judge us by the shortcomings of our motives. And in terms of acts, “even the sinners of Israel are as full of good deeds as a pomegranate (with seed).”7

And indeed, this is what Joseph himself did, when he said to his brothers:8 “You intended evil against me; but G-d meant it for good, to act, as it is this day, to save many people alive.” Although they intended to harm Joseph by selling him into slavery, it transpired that their act brought Joseph to a position where he was able to save many lives by his prudential policy of storing food for the imminent famine. And Joseph judged them on their action (which turned out well), not their intention.

We can take the argument a stage further. The advocate of strict adherence to the law might concede that even though a man does good for ulterior motives, in the subconscious depths of his soul he desires closeness to G-d for its own sake, and should be rewarded for it. But surely when he sins he can have no such holy desires, however subconscious; for the soul in its unfelt depths dissociates itself from the sin.9How then can G-d allow us retroactively to transform our sins into merits10 by the act of repentance, when our sins have no saving grace?

This is the extra act of mercy for which the Midrash, in the name of Rabbi Menachem, asks as its third request: “Just as Joseph bestowed good on those who had harmed him, so we acted badly toward You: May You bestow good on us in return.” May You judge us, in other words, in the light of the ultimate good (our act of repentance) as if it had been our original intention, at the moment when we sinned, only to bring about good.

4. The Meaning of Joseph

Why is it on the strength of Joseph’s conduct that we make these three requests of G-d? The difference between Jacob and Joseph11 is that while Jacob lived on the highest plane of spiritual existence, Joseph translated this spiritual reality into material terms. In the individual, this is the power that allows the perception of G-d’s essence to enter the dimensions of the human mind, emotions—and actions even into actions done from ulterior motives.

Because the depths of the Jewish soul can make themselves be felt in this world (the capacity which derives from Joseph), he is able to bring into the world the outflowing of G-d’s essence in the world to come.

And thus his innermost intentions—which are pure even though his conscious motives are not—have a tangible reality even in this world: So that G-d may bestow good on him even when his acts have been bad.

This is Joseph’s heritage to every Jew. In his act of feeding his family in a time of famine, despite all their wrongs towards him, he has given us the power to reach beyond the surface of our fellow Jew, with all its superficial failings, and to penetrate to the core of his being and respond to its fundamental holiness. And when we treat another Jew in this way, we arouse that core of holiness in him, and in ourselves as well, so that in time it breaks through its coverings, and the essence of our soul stands revealed.

FOR FRIDAY NIGHT: The Promise (Vayigash)

Tevet 3, 5775 · December 25, 2014
The Promise

Our parshah describes the beginning of a new stage in the history of the Jewish people. Jacob and all his children and grandchildren, numbering altogether seventy people, had been living in the land which was going to be the Land of Israel. Due to the harsh famine, and in response to the invitation of the long-lost Joseph, the entire family was now moving to Egypt.

Jacob had good reason to be worried about what might happen there. Would his unique family be able to maintain its identity, or would it simply disappear, swamped by the sophisticated culture of a major power? Further, how would the Egyptians relate to the Hebrews, worshippers of a G-d they could not see? As we ourselves know, the Egyptian ruler later enslaved the Jews and did his best to destroy them.

During the journey to Egypt, G-d appeared to Jacob in a vision. “Do not be afraid of going down to Egypt,” said G-d. “I will go down with you.” Together with this came a promise that eventually the Jewish people would return to the Holy Land.

This promise from G-d gave the family of Jacob a sense of direction. They did not forget who they were and where they were going. After two hundred years of slavery, when G-d sent a great leader to them to set them free, they recognized him as a man of G-d and responded to his leadership. Eventually the promise was fulfilled: They left Egypt, returned to the Holy Land, took possession of it and built the Temple.

We, too, thousands of years later, find ourselves in a situation in which it is very easy to lose one’s way. But we too have been given a promise by G-d: by following the path of the Torah we will make a dwelling for G-d in our hearts, our homes and our lives. This will affect not only the entire Jewish people, but all humanity. The promise of Jewish teaching is that in the most positive way imaginable, we will transform the world.

This is the Divine promise. We can rely on it. The rest is up to us!
