Parashat Vayigash 5792 / פָּרָשַׁת וַיִּגַּשׁ

/ 5 Tevet 5792

Parashat Vayigash is the 11th weekly Torah portion in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading.

Torah Portion: Genesis 44:18-47:27

Vayigash (“He Approached”) opens as Judah pleads with Joseph not to keep Benjamin as a prisoner. Joseph reveals his true identity to his brothers, crying and kissing them. The brothers bring Jacob from Canaan to Egypt, and Jacob and his children settle in Goshen. The portion ends as Joseph buys most of Egypt’s land in exchange for food. [1]
