Summary of Today's Chumash
This parsha opens in this first aliyah with Yakov dwelling (the meaning of the opening words of the parsha: "Vayeishev Yakov") where his father had lived, in Chevron. This aliyah begins the interesting story of Yosef, Yakov's firstborn son from his wife Rachel. Here we find out that Yakov favored Yosef, and made him a fancy coat, and that Yosef reported bad things about his brothers to their father. Finally, Yosef had dreams implying that he would eventually rule over his brothers. All this added up to his brothers hating him and as we'll see in a later aliyah, they'll plot to kill him.
