Shabbat Mikaytz (Gen. 41:1-44:17)
Meanwhile, back at the ranch (or the pyramid) Pharaoh has made Joseph the BJOC (big Jew on campus). Joe implements the first national yo-yo diet plan (feast/famine), and ends up assisting the Pharoah in a total land-grab as things get really really bad.
And that’s when things start to get interesting. Because who should come calling but his long lost kin?
But as usual, it’s all about the food.
So, limited only by your creativity and the category of food assigned, please bring something that represents *either* the lean years or the years of plenty.
