👍Jacob Gives Advice to His Sons

👍Jacob and Joseph Pass Away


*PARASHAT VaYechi DISCUSSION QUESTIONS*

👉1. Why do you think Jews still bless their sons on the Sabbath saying, “May God make you as Ephraim and Menashe?” What is so special about them? How does it relate to the sons blessed today? How do Jews bless their daughters today?

👉2. On his deathbed Jacob gathers his sons and tells each of them what is to become of them in the days to come. What do you think will become of you in the days to come? What do you think will become of your loved ones? Why is this your vision?

👉3. After Jacob dies, the brothers fear Joseph’s punishment for their previous sins. Joseph instead comforts his brothers and speaks to their hearts. How do you comfort someone and speak to their heart? How are you best comforted by someone else?Parashat Vayechi Discussion Questions
