Vayechi – Hamalach Hagoeil II

“May the angel who redeems me from all evil bless the lads, and may my name be declared upon them, and the names of my forefathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they proliferate abundantly like fish within the land.” (Genesis 48:16)

Jacob wished that Joseph’s sons should reflect the spiritual level of the patriarchs. While it is quite impossible for any Jew to completely sever the connection with all three of the patriarchs, Jacob blessed Joseph’s sons in that they would never fail to reflect the spiritual values of even one of the patriarchs. (Or Hachaim HaKadosh)
