Eleven Stars: When Stardom is Not Enough.
In this week’s Torah parsha, a young Joseph receives a dream in which the sun, moon and eleven stars, representing his parents and brothers, bow down to him, portraying himself as greater than others in his family. The result was harsh, as the Torah says that his brothers began to hate him. Was Joseph naive in telling this dream to his brothers? What lessons are there for us in the way we present ourselves to others in terms of our own successes and accomplishments? When Muhammad Ali said, “I am the greatest,” did he make himself more or less liked by the public? Ponder, discuss, explore.
