ú Yaakov lives in Egypt 17 years

ú Yaakov lives to be 147 years old, while yosef lives to be 110.

ú Ephraim and Menashe will be like Reuven and Shimon to yaakov (meaning they will have their own inheritance with the tribes).

ú The blessing children get from their parents on Friday night comes form this parasha: Hamalach hagoel oti mikol ra, yevarech et hanearim

ú Yaakov blesses all of his 12 sons before his death. Yehudah and yosef get the longest blessings.

ú Shvatim who are compared to animals: Yehuda=lion, Yissachar=donkey, Dan=snake, Naphtali=deer/gazelle, (Yosef=ox,) Binyamin=wolf.

ú Three out of the four pairs buries in Mearat Hamachpela are mentioned in the parasha: avraham and sarah, yitzchak and rivka, yaakov and leah. The fourth pair is adam and chava.

ú Yaakov was buried in Mearat hamachpela; the funeral was in Goren HaAtad.

ú Yosef was not allowed to leave Egypt alone form fear that he will not return; instead Paroe sent with yosef and his brothers a great host to accompany them.

ú The brothers thought that yosef will revenge what they did to him, but instead he reassures them that it was all from G-d.

ú Yosef tells his brothers that G-d will remember them and bring them back to Canaan Pakod Ifkod. These become the code words which Moshe later uses when telling Bnei Yisrael that G-d will soon save them.

ú Sefer Breishit has 12 parashot and 50 prakim (chapters)

ú If you think you know how many psukim are in the whole Sefer, come to Netanel Afek for a chance to win a prize.
