Family for the Millenium? Cain and Able? Moses and Aron? Judah and Joseph?

 

Family for the Millenium? Cain and Able? Moses and Aron? Judah and Joseph?

I was asked by a teacher today " what "one-sentence" would be best to give out on a present to all the 15-year-old girls in her class?" 

I thought of Rabbi Shlomo who always quoted the Ishbitzer Rebbe about how Moses and Aron's brotherly love was taught to the world to fix the jealousy and anger (and crime) of Cain and Able. 

But this week's portion teaches us how Judah overcame his shame and redeemed himself for selling Joseph 

and offered to become a slave in Egypt so his brother Benjamin would not be made a slave. 

And Joseph forgave ALL his brothers because they showed remorse for their actions toward him.
