In our Torah portion for Chanukah week, parashat Miketz, Joseph successfully interpreted Pharoah's dreams and quickly rose to political power in Egypt. Because of a severe famine in the land of Canaan, however, his brothers came to Egypt in search of food. A disguised Joseph then tested his brothers to see whether they were the same people who had callously sold him into slavery, or whether they had undergone teshuvah (repentance).
