Preparing for Famine

In an address to children, the Rebbe encourages every Jew, wherever he may be, to take the example of Joseph during his exile in Egypt. Joseph had the foresight to collect and store the country’s grain during the seven years of plenty not only in order to save Egypt, but to supply grain to all the neighboring lands during the seven years of famine which followed.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
Preparing for Famine
Disc 148, Program 589

Event Date: 1 Tevet 5745 - December 25, 1984

In an address to children, the Rebbe encourages every Jew, wherever he may be, to take the example of Joseph during his exile in Egypt. Joseph had the foresight to collect and store the country’s grain during the seven years of plenty not only in order to save Egypt, but to supply grain to all the neighboring lands during the seven years of famine which followed.

In our generation, the hunger is not for grain but Torah. Whatever Torah knowledge we had the fortune to acquire, must now be used to sustain others.
