The tenth section of the Book of Genesis continues the chronicle of Joseph. It begins two years after (Mikeitz, “at the end of” in Hebrew) Joseph asked Pharoah’s cupbearer to intercede for him. This time it is Pharaoh who dreams – twice – and seeks a qualified interpreter. Joseph interprets Pharaoh’s dreams convincingly as referring to seven coming years of plenty followed by seven years of famine, and this leads Pharaoh to appoint Joseph as viceroy of Egypt. The onset of famine brings Joseph’s brothers to Egypt to buy food that Joseph stored up during the years of plenty. When Joseph sees them, he devises a way to determine if they have abandoned their former hatred of him and are ready to join him in moving the family forward in its Divine mission.
