Parsha Vayeishev


Hold onto G-D

Genesis 39:21-23: “But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners who were in the prison; whatever they did there, it was his doing. The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph's authority, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.”

The ‘parsha’ (‘Torah’ portion) this week is ‘Parsha Vayeishev’ (‘and he lived’ or ‘and he settled’), found in Genesis 37:1 – 40:23. It is the ninth weekly ‘Torah’ portion in the annual Jewish cycle of ‘Torah’ reading, and the ninth in the book of Genesis; the corresponding ‘haftorah’ (reading of the prophets) is found in Amos 2:6 – 3:8.
