Pharaoh Didn’t Know Joseph And Perhaps We Forgot Him Too (Article)

Rabbi Daniel J. Moskovitz

Pharaoh Didn’t Know Joseph And Perhaps We Forgot Him Too – My Jewish Learning.

A fascinating trip through the parsha by the rabbi. I want to question some of his questions though.

Does the text mean to suggest that it was the memory of Joseph that had kept the Israelites safe from oppression in Egypt? In other words, was the hatred always there just below the surface, waiting for the opportunity to arise?

How were the Egyptian people complicit in Pharaoh’s evil scheme? Why did all the people of Egypt go along with it?

Why jump directly to hatred and evil? Why not start first at fear? Or are hatred, evil, and fear the same thing?
