From Pit To Palace: The Meaning Of Joseph’s Groundhog Day

The Untold Story Of Joseph's Redemption

Parshat Miketz continues the epic Joseph saga. Joseph is released from prison and quickly becomes second in command to Pharaoh, making him one of the most powerful men in the world. The transition from prisoner to minister is jarring, a rags-to-riches story fit for the tabloids.

The story makes you wonder: was this some great coincidence, a bizarre twist of fate? Or did Joseph do something to earn this great station and finally leave his woes behind for good?

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he finds echoes of Joseph’s first misfortune in all his later trials, and uncovers an evolution in Joseph’s character that may explain his unfathomable rise to power, from pit to palace.
