Parashat Miketz: Purposeful Ambiguity



Rabbi David Silber / November 26, 2013

Audio  
In this session, we talk about the concept of "purposeful ambiguity," where the interpretation of a verse or story is indeterminate. In addition, we compare the story of Benjamin "stealing" the cup with the story of Rachel taking her father's idols and trace elements of the Joseph narrative into Megillat Esther.
