26 Kislev 5774 Shabbat Shalom

This week’s parsha is Miketz (translated from Hebrew to mean “at the end”) covering Genesis 41:1- 44:17.  Joseph is again the focus; this week’s parshat explains how he interperets the Pharoahs dreams and gains power whilst testing the brothers that have treated him so poorly.

There is also a haftorah for Hanukkah http://www.jtsa.edu/Conservative_Judaism/JTS_Torah_Commentary/Maftir_Hanukkah.xml

For those that wish to read and study the parsha, the following sources provide good information:
