Vayechi | Leaving a Legacy

In Parshat Vayechi leaving a legacy we will examine how Jacob spent the final “good” years of his life fulfilling the commandment to be spiritually fruitful — by educating the young, especially his grandson Ephraim (see Rashi on Gen. 48:1: “Ephraim was habitually with Jacob learning”). Jacob’s final blessings, will and, testament to his sons, with their harsh chastisements, were also intended to be educational.
