Summary of Today's Chumash
The seventh aliyah describes the process of the Egyptian people coming to Yosef during the famine to buy food. At first they give their money, but when their money runs out, they pay with their cattle. Next, they give their land. Finally, they sell themselves into servitude for food. Meanwhile, in the land of Goshen, the Torah says that Yakov's family was fruitful and multiplied exceedingly.
