Summary of Today's Chumash
In the fifth aliyah, Yakov packs up all his family and belongings and heads down to Egypt to see his beloved son Yosef. Along the way, in Beersheva, Yakov is given assurance by G-d that he will be made into a great nation in Egypt, and that G-d will surely bring him back up from there (Rashi says this refers to the fact that Yakov will be buried in Israel).
