Parshas Vayigash - All Of Life's A Circle (dedicated in memory of Gitel bas Zev Halevi)
Updated: Dec 9, 2021
After being told that Yosef is still alive, Yaakov’s spirit is revived when he sees the agalos, the wagons, that Yosef sent for Yaakov. But Yaakov does not travel to Mitzrayim in those agalos. The Torah tells us that Yaakov travels to Mitzrayim in the agalos that Pharaoh sent for him. Why does Pharaoh send down agalos if Yosef had sent agalos as well. Why is Yaakov’s spirit revived when he sees Yosefs wagons? If they are so inspiring then surely he should have gone to Mitzrayim in those agalos! In this inspiring shiur from Rav Burg we learn the true nature of exile and redemption and how to navigate the exiles we experience in our own life. Additionally, Rav Burg tells over the incredible story of Mrs. Isseroff z"l for whom this shiur is dedicated. May her memory be a blessing.
