Torah Portion: Vayeishev (He Continued Living) B’Resheet (Gen.) 37:1-40:23
HafTorah: Amos 2:6-3:8
New Testament: Acts 7:9-16
Tonight we read about the life of Joseph from an early age until he gets out of prison. However I would like us to spend most of our time on Genesis 38, which is the story of Tamar and Judah. I think as we read this chapter it would at first glance seem to have little connection with the flow of the life of Joseph. However, we will see similarities as we go through it.
