Human Action and a Divine Plan
Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, Rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy Sites
This week, we reach the happy ending of the long and complicated story of Joseph and his brothers. The story stretches over a period of forty years and does not end gradually. All of a sudden, Joseph breaks down in tears in front of his stunned brothers. ?I am Joseph?, he tells them, adding, ?Is my father still alive?!? It seems from this question that this concern has been on his mind since he was sold into slavery at the age of 17 until now, at the age of 39, as he blurts it out during the dramatic encounter with his brothers.
