Summary of Today's Chumash
In the sixth aliyah Yakov sends his son Yehuda out before the rest of the family to the land of Goshen in Egypt to set up a yeshiva there. Yosef hastily goes to meet his father. They hadn't seen each other for 22 years, and Yakov had thought that Yosef was dead. The Torah says that when they met here they cried for a long time. Yosef prepares his family to meet Pharaoh, which they do, and Pharaoh invites them to live in Goshen.
