RABBI RICHARD HERTZ

Special to The Jewish News

T

his week's sedra com-
pletes the Joseph story
as well as the book of
Genesis. Joseph, the Disraeli
of ancient Egypt, has saved
the country from famine.
In previous weeks, Joseph
and his brothers were
dramatically reunited. Now,
Joseph and his father take
center stage and exhibit a
touching relationship. Joseph
adored his father, Jacob. After
disclosing his identity to his
brothers, Joseph immediately
asked them, "Is my father
still alive and well?" (Gen.
45:3) After the reconciliation
with his brothers, Joseph ar-
ranged to move his aged
father to Egypt where he
could care for him.
Jacob became ill and knew
his days were numbered.
Before he died, he wanted to

bless his grandsons, the sons
of Joseph.
The sedra describes how
Jacob blessed Joseph's sons,
Ephraim and Mannasah.
Jacob tells Joseph, "Your two
sons who were born to you in
the land of Egypt before I
came . . . should be mine.
Ephraim and Mannasah
should be mine no less than
Reuben and Simeon."
Joseph then brings the two
boys into Jacob's bedroom.
"Who are these?" Jacob's
eyesight was dimmed with
age.
"I never expected to see you
again, much less your
children as well," Jacob says.
Jacob's blessing is reminis-
cent of those given by Isaac.
In the blessing of Joseph's
sons, scripture meant to
elevate them by adoption so
they might sire the Israelite
tribes that would later bear
their names. Only Jacob
could decide who would be in-
cluded in the people of Israel.
Only he could impart the
divine blessing.

"By you shall Israel invite
blessings saying: 'God make
you like Ephraim and Man-
nasah.' " (Gen. 48:20) Future
generations would always
remember the special bless-
ing on the two boys. But the
younger child takes
precedence over the older.
Jacob's life is now complete.
He passes on the blessing of
Abraham, which his father
Isaac had bestowed on him, to
his grandchildren Ephraim
and Mannasah.
Then, realizing his end was
at hand, he said to Joseph: "I
am about to die but God will
be with you and bring you
back to the land of your
fathers." Jacob then summon-
ed all his sons to his bedside
to hear his farewell words.
This was to be a deathbed will
and testament.
The Torah records here a
series of aphorisms in poetic
form. Jacob's last words are
among the most difficult text
in all of Genesis. Each son is
identified with a tribe of
Israel. Some aphorisms per-
