Blessing of the Children VI Print
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Blessing ChildrenMenashe and Ephraim were the first Jews born and raised in exile. What is more, they were raised in Pharaoh’s court at a time when there was no Jewish religious life in Egypt except for the intimacy of their own family. That they grew up to be a source of pride to Jacob makes them eminently worthy to be the showpieces of Israel. (Yalkut Yehudah)
