Shalom! This is my commentary on the portion Vayeshev – “and he dwelt.” In this portion, Joseph goes down into Egypt to serve Potiphar, only to be thrown into jail, falsely accused. Yet, we see the Hand of the Creator at work by giving dreams to two men in prison so that Joseph might be positioned to step into his purpose. Hope you enjoy.

The reason Judah did not give Shelah to Tamar is in Genesis 38:11 – Then Judah said to Tamar, his daughter-in-law, Remain a widow at your father’s house till Shelah my [youngest] son is grown; for he thought, Lest perhaps [if Shelah should marry her] he would die also, as his brothers did. So Tamar went and lived in her father’s house.
