Parshat Vayigash 5779
Beis HaLevi: Why did Yosef ask if his father is still alive, they mentioned it many times! Why were they ashamed by his simply saying "I am Yosef"? Why were they speechless?
Why does this incident inspire R' Abba to say "אוי לנו מיום הדין אוי לנו מיום התוכחה"?
Delivered at the OU Israel Center, December 13th, 2018 (5 Tevet 5779)
Dedicated by Rav Yosef & Beverly Safsel in loving memory of their dear son אהרון מכל ז"ל בן גרשון on his 8th yahrzeit
