Yaakov & Yosef
Join Rabbi Chaim Brovender and explore the complicated relationship of our forefather Yaakov (Jacob), and his favored son, Yosef (Joseph). In this course we will begin from from Bereishit 25:1 at the end of Parshat Chayei Sarah and delve into the origins of Yaakov and Esav and how that shaped Yaakov’s eventual relationship with Yosef. The course will conclude at Bereishit 46:19 where Yaakov and all his children go down to Egypt.
