Listen On


This conversation with Adina Blaustein explores the climactic interaction between Yosef and Yehuda that opens this week’s parsha, as well as the Haftora reading’s commentary on their relationship.

This episode has been sponsored in honor of Bobby Winter’s birthday by her family.

This episode is part of Matan’s Bereshit series titled Choseness and Choices. The book of Bereshit is propelled forward by God’s chosen representatives: Adam, Noach, Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov, but these messengers impact the world because of the choices they make. It is the nexus between being chosen and the human choices that actualize the divine will in the world that is explored in this series.
