What did Yosef send to his father Yaakov?
וּלְאָבִ֞יו שָׁלַ֤ח כְּזֹאת֙ עֲשָׂרָ֣ה חֲמֹרִ֔ים נֹשְׂאִ֖ים מִטּ֣וּב מִצְרָ֑יִם וְעֶ֣שֶׂר אֲתֹנֹ֡ת נֹֽ֠שְׂאֹת בָּ֣ר וָלֶ֧חֶם וּמָז֛וֹן לְאָבִ֖יו לַדָּֽרֶךְ׃
And to his father he sent the following: ten he-asses laden with the best things of Egypt, and ten she-asses laden with grain, bread, and provisions for his father on the journey.
Yosef sent his father the very valuable royal robes that he wore when he was appointed and paraded as the new viceroy of Egypt.
Yosef also sent his father quality aged wine on top of the donkeys. We learn this from the letter vav missing in the word “Chamorim/Donkeys”.
Additionally, “Yayin Yashan/Aged wine”, has a numerical value of 430. Alluding to the the 430 years in the verse (Shemot Ch.14, 40): “Umoshave Bnei Yisrael asher yashvu bemitzrayim 430 shana.”
(Chupat Eliyahu, Tzemach Tzedek, Maharal MiPrague)
