Make a Dedication
January 2, 2018
Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיָּ֤מָת יוֹסֵף֙ וְכָל־אֶחָ֔יו וְכֹ֖ל הַדּ֥וֹר הַהֽוּא׃
Joseph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation.
Yosef lost 10 years of his life because he transgressed the mitzvah of honoring one’s parents for which the reward is longevity.
Yosef heard the expression “your servant our father” 10 times (5 by the brothers and 5 by the translator) and remained silent.
Some say he was supposed to live until 147 like his father Yakov, but he gave away 37 years to King David.
(Pirkei DeRabbi Eliezer, Bereshit Rabbah on Vayechi, Zohar on Vayishlach)
