Remember Joseph? Yeah, the many-colored-coat guy. Well, it seems to bring out the nasty in a bunch of Original Ganstas – Joseph’s bros. Hip Hop artist Daniel Silverstein (aka Danny Raphael) lays down the story for us in rhyme.
Vayeshev (וַיֵּשֶׁב “and he lived”) is the 9th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Torah reading cycle of Genesis 37:1–40:23. Parshat Vayeshev introduces us to Jacob’s son Joseph.
