Dr. Ellen Dannin has just written a dvar-Torah for this weeks Torah portion, Beshallah Here is an excerpt:
Consider Joseph. He was not just the pawn of fate. He sought answers, and he acted on them to elevate his life and the lives of those around him. On his deathbed, when he asked that his body be taken with the children of Egypt on their journeys, his presence could be a reminder of the need to live a purposeful life.
