RE: God - Why is Joseph important to Jewish people?


Adults - Introduce the story of Joseph. Explain this is a story found in the Jewish holy book the Torah and also in the Christian holy book the Bible. Explain what the Torah is and why it is important to Jews, it is also the first 5 books of the Christian bible…

Adults & Children: Using the ideas found in this text, explore the emotions of jealousy and the relationship between Joseph and his brothers and the place of Joseph’s dreams in Genesis 37:1-11. You could role-play, discuss and also draw characters with speech bubbles.


Discuss: What might this story teach people about Joseph and God? Questions you can explore e.g. what can we learn about Joseph and how he followed God from this part of the story? Does this part of the story teach the Jews anything about God? Why is Joseph remembered by Jews as an example of how to live?
