Parasha VaYeshev 5771 Dreams and Dreamers

Show Notes
Parsha VaYeshev
Genesis 37:1-29:23

A few things got lost in my re-recording of the podcast.
I realized that last week we did not discuss Jacob’s name change to Israel.   So sorry…but we’ll get to it next year.  Just know that from here on in, the text uses both Jacob and Israel for the same person.  The family tree of Jacob’s offspring is listed below.

Jacob’s children by each wife

Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun and Dinah
Zilpah (Leah’s servant): 
Gad, Asher
Bilha (Rachel’s servant)
Dan, Naftali
Joseph, Benjamin

Jacob’s Children’s Birth Order: 
Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naftali,
Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Dinah, Joseph, Benjamin

The Psalm, Psalm 118, was a modified translation of the JPS translation.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
