JDMM: Parshas Mikeitz

MikeitzThis week's parsha focuses on the interesting topic of dreams this week. Not only did Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, have two dreams in this week's parshah (Mikeitz), but so did Joseph in last week's parsha (Vayeshev). Their dreams may have seemed to be similar, but there is actually a very important lesson to learn from the difference between Joseph and Pharaoh's dreams. What difference are we talking about?

Rabbi Darby Jared Leigh brings a message about self-discovery


Darby Jared Leigh, the first deaf Reconstructionist rabbi, visited Gallaudet on November 12 for a special Shabbat presentation entitled "From Locks to Lox." In his talk, Rabbi Leigh described a journey of self-discovery that he undertook through study, experience--and hair.

"I consider myself a truth seeker," Leigh said. "That search took me to a lot of different places." In 1993, his quest led him to spend a year studying at Gallaudet--a time he called "hugely impactful" on his path to defining his deaf identity. Leigh intended to stay for one semester, but extended his time to a full year.
