פרשת ויחי

Gn. 47:28-50:26 | 1Kgs. 2:1-12

In this last parashah of the book of Genesis, Yaakov, who made Yosef swear to bury him in the Holy Land, blesses his sons, each with his own quality, and raises his grandsons Ephraim and Menashe to the status of a tribe as well. His body is escorted by a grand procession to the cave of Machpelah in Hebron. Yosef dies at the age of 110, but his bones will only be taken to Canaan (following his instructions) hundreds of years later, in the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt.
