Vayechi – וַיְחִי (Genesis 47:28–50:26)
This Week’s Torah Portion: Vayechi – וַיְחִי (Genesis 47:28–50:26)
Jacob our Patriarch blesses his grandchildren, saying: “May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh” (Genesis 48:20). Their names are Ephraim and Manasseh. That is the traditional blessing for children still today.
May God make you whom you ought to be, and may God make you true to yourself. May you be you!
