Menashe vs. Ephraim

Part II of Rabbi Posner’s class on parshas Vayechi.

— Why did Yakov decide to bless younger Ephrayim before the older Menashe?
— Why did Yosef want to switch them back?
— What do Menashe and Ephrayim symbolize and what do the two approaches (of Yakov and Yosef) teach us how to deal with the world?

For this and more, listen to the shiur below.
