Joseph's life is bound up with dreams, their solutions and their fulfillments. The Torah tells of his two dreams, of the dreams of two of Pharaoh's ministers imprisoned with him, and of the two dreams of Pharaoh himself. Although many dreams appear in the Bible, throughout the Bible we find the word "פתר" only regarding Joseph in our Parashah, Vayeishev and next week's, Miketz. In contrast, a similar word, "פשר" appears in Aramaic in relation to Nebuchadnezzar's dreams and the "writing on the wall" in the days of his grandson, Belshazzar. In this week's article, we examine and compare the meanings of these two words, as well as the difference between "פשר" in Aramaic and its parallel in the Holy Language, and the lessons to be learned about Joseph, Daniel and Solomon. Shabbat Shalom.
