Extracts from 4 tThe Graphic History
of the Jewish Heritage." Edited by

A Seven Arts Feature.

The brothers strip Joseph
and throw him into the
pit. A caravan of Ish.
maelites is seen in the

"And it came to pass,
when Joseph was cm*
unto his brethren, that
they stripped Joseph of
his coat" (Gen. 37.23).

Vayeshev — Jacob and his sons dwelt in the land of Canaan as
shepherds. Of all his sons, Jacob loved Joseph best. His obvious
favoritism produced hatred and jealousy among the brothers.
Joseph's brothers sold the hated favorite to some Ishmaelite
merchants, who took Joseph to Egypt with them. There, Potiphar,
an officer of the Pharaoh and captain of his guard, bought
Joseph as a slave. The Hebrew lad quickly rose to a position of
responsibility in his master's household. However, Joseph rejected
the advances of Potiphar's wife; she slandered him, and he was
imprisoned. But in prison, too, God was with Joseph, and he won
the confidence of the jailers. He became known as an interpreter
of dreams by correctly reading the significance of the dreams of
Pharaoh's butler and baker when they were his prison-mates.

VAYISHLAH 11 127'+1



"And Rachel died, and
was buried in the way to
Ephrath — the same ;s
Bethlehem. And Jacob
set up a pillar upon her
grave" (Gen. 35.19-20).

Vayishlah — Approaching the boundary of the land of Seir where
his brother Esau dwelt, Jacob prudently sent messengers ahead
to inform Esau of his coming and of his wealth. The messengers
returned with the news that Esau was advancing toward Jacob
with 400 men. Terrified, Jacob divided his camp into two sections,
so as not to lose all in the event of an attack. He sent gifts to
Esau and prayed God to save him from his brother. Jacob crossed
the stream of Jabbok with his camp. There, as he stood alone,
an angel approached and wrestled with him. At the end of the
struggle, the angel declared: "Thy name shall be called no more
Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God and with men,
and hast prevailed" (Genesis 32.29). Thus encouraged, Jacob met
Esau, whom he treated with the utmost deference. Embracing,
the two brothers kissed, wept, and were reconciled. Jacob jour-
neyed on to Shechem. There the rape of Jacob's only daughter,
Dinah, by the prince of that city, led to the vengeful destruction
of Shechem by two of Dinah's brothers. Proceeding to Beth-el,
Jacob kept the vow he had made to return thither. On the way,
Rachel gave birth to Jacob's last and youngest son, Benjamin.
But Rachel died in childbirth, and Jacob buried her on the way
to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem.

Philadelphia Rabbis
Split on State Bill for
Busing of All Students

State Senate bill to provide busing,
for children attending public, pri-
vate and religiously sponsored
schools continued to evoke con-
flicting stands from Jewish spokes-
A group of 50 Philadelphia
rabbis issued a statement support-
ing the measure, a move which
has not been endorsed by the
Board of Rabbis of Greater Phila-
delphia. The board has announced
publicly it is not taking any stand
on the matter.
At the same time, the Jewish
Labor Committee announced its
opposition to the bill. Previously,
the local Community Relations
Committee had testified against
the bill in Harrisburg.
The rabbis' statement urged the
State Senate "to act promptly to
move for enactment of a school

a letter to State Senator Preston
Davis, chairman of the Senate
