Parshat Vayechi: The Uniqueness of the Twelve Tribes (Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz)
Orthodox Rabbinic Presentation
– Why is the Nation of Israel made up of Twelve Tribes? What is true unity? Each of the Twelve Tribes reflects a unique path in life. As the verse tells us at the conclusion of the blessings: All these are the twelve tribes of Israel… every one according to his blessing he blessed them. Rabbi Breitowitz elaborates on the uniqueness of each tribe.
