Merry Torah Time
Today's reading is Parasha Vayechi, Genesis 47:28–50:26.
Seeing death approach, Jacob requests to be returned to Canaan to be buried among his own. Jacob blesses Joseph’s sons Ephraim and Manasseh, and his own sons. Typical Old Testament hierarchical division of roles occurs as the Twelve Tribes are created. Jacob is buried at Macphelah (Hebron) where Jewish legend holds he remains today in the Cave of the Patriarchs on land Abraham bought to bury Sarah.
This is the shortest of the Torah portions.
