Dr. Brachi Elitzur Yosef's Behavior in the Encounter with his Brothers - Part II In our shiur on Parashat Miketz, we proposed three factors that explain Yosef's behavior towards his brothers throughout the two encounters between them following the long years of separation.

Rav Shimon Klein Parashat Vayigash: Descent to Egypt In this week’s parasha, the Torah describes the descent of “Yaakov” and “Yisrael” to Egypt. We will examine the significance of the appearance of these two names in the context of the transition of Yaakov’s family to life in Egypt. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading

Prof. Yonatan Grossman Yehuda vs. Tamar as Background to Yehuda vs. Yosef We gain insight into the confrontation between Yehuda and Yosef if we read it in light of the story of Yehuda and Tamar... Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Rav Yoel Bin-Nun Why Did Yosef Not Send Word to his Father? A Solution In a previous shiur, we explored a variety of explanations for Yosef's puzzling behavior vis-a-vis his brothers and father. None of these could adequately answer the glaring question: Why, during all his years of servitude and his rise to power, did Yosef not send a letter to his father telling him that he was still alive? What could possibly justify the anguish he caused his aged and loving father? Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading

Rav Yair Kahn Parashat Vayigash: Tzafnat Pa’aneach – Prince of Egypt The story of Yosef and his brothers is more than fascinating family drama. Based on the principle of maaseh avot siman la-banim (the actions of the fathers are a sign for the children), it had a profound impact on the way in which Yaakov’s family developed into Kenesset Yisrael. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Rav Amnon Bazak Literary Messages Concealed in the List of Yaakov’s Family In this shiur, we will discuss some of the fundamental questions relating to the story of Yosef's treatment of his brothers. What was Yosef trying to accomplish, and why didn't he contact his father once he had the opportunity to do so? Why did Yosef wait so long to reveal his identity to his brothers? Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Rav Gad Eldad "I am Yosef; Does my Father Yet Live?" Yosef Reveals His Identity Why does Yosef reveal his identity to his brothers when he does? Said differently, why didn't Yosef reveal his identity until this point? In this shiur, we will attempt to answer these questions through a comparison of two interactions between the brothers in which Yosef recounts his perspective on the events. Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Harav Yaakov Medan The Years of Famine in Egypt The conclusion of the Torah portion describes how Yosef reorganizes the Egyptian economy. Is this an act of compassion or cruelty? Parshat HaShavua - The Weekly Torah Reading
Rav Yoel Bin-Nun Parashat Vayigash and Its Haftara In this shiur, we will explore why Yehuda's words had such a strong impact on Yosef. In addition, we will focus on Yehuda's devotion to Binyamin, which is further reflected in the haftara from Sefer Yechezkel and teaches us an important lesson about the process of redemption.
