Vayeshev is the srcinal version of events! Joseph had 12 brothers and famously was his father  ’ s favourite. When he was 17, his father gave him a striped coat of many colours which made his brothers extremely jealous. The brothers’ anger only increased as Joseph started to tell stories of his dreams in which 11 stars, the sun and moon bowed down to his star. If that was not enough, 11 bushels of wheat bowed to his. His brothers took the drastic step of throwing him into a pit. However, instead of killing him, they chose to sell him to passing traders who took him to Egypt. Joseph was sold to be a slave in the house of a rich man called Potiphar. Joseph worked had and rose to become the chief slave in charge of the household. However, he had a problem with Potiphar’s  wife and found himself in prison. Once more, he worked hard and rose to become the chief prisoner, helping the governor run the prison. The Pharoah subsequently imprisoned his chief butler and chief baker, who both had dreams. Joseph correctly interpreted and predicted the outcome of the dreams, informing the butler that he would be freed and the baker would be executed. Despite Joseph’ s request to the butler that he remember him and help him get out of prison, the butler forgot about him for two years. The sedra continues next week with Pharaoh ’ s dreams of fat cows and thin cows and the butler remembering that there was a man in the jail who correctly interpreted dreams. Haftarah  The Haftarah for this week is from the book of Amos. The reason for having a haftarah is thought to be associated with the Chanukah story. Chanukah begins in 3 days time. Gifts, donuts and chocolate money do not feature in the srcinal account...but one of those three treats can be traced back to the Chanukah story.  At the beginning of the Chanukah story, Antiochus, the Assyrian-Greek ruler, banned the reading of Torah in public. The rabbis did not want the people to forget Torah, so found a way around this rule. They asked if they could read something else in public in place of the Torah and this was agreed. The rabbis looked through the books of the prophets to find sections that would remind the people of the part of Torah they should have been reading that week. The Jewish people defeated the Assyrian-Greeks, pushed back their army, removed Antiochus and found one bottle of oil to light the Menorah in the temple  –  the oil has become a symbol of both the Chanukah story and the humble donut fried in oil during the modern festival. However, in ancient times, the Jewish people continued to read the Haftarah, even though they were free to read from the Torah again. In this week ’ s Haftarah, Amos speaks about the fact that God will punish the Jewish people for the things they have done wrong. His first example concerns… Joseph ’ s brothers and the fact that they sold him into slavery for 20 pieces of Silver.
