In the passed almost two years, i have had the greatest joy and pleasure of writing this email every week. Due to some minor problems over time I missed a few weeks. I hope that in the future when I do miss a week I can still have a amazing shabbos without the feeling of letting "my world come crashing down."
In this week's Parsha, Parshas Vayigash. Yaakov Avinu is forced to send Binyamin down to Egypt . After Yosef was gone, Yaakov Avinu cherished Binyamin the most. Yaakov was in tremendous pain from the loss of Yosef. He tore something from his heart and let it go, with the hope and prayers that Yosef would return in the near future.
