Parsha of the Week

Yakkov  lived  in  Egypt  for  seventeen  years .The  time  came  of  his  death   approaching .He  called  his  son  Yosef.  He  said  to  him  "Please  If  I  have  found  favor  in  your  eyes"  please  put  your  hand  under my  thigh .Please  do  not  bury  me  in  Egypt.  Bury  me  next to my  father . You  shall  bring  me  there.  Yakkov  died at  the  age  of  one  hundred  and  forty  seven.

The meaning of Yosef placing his hand under the thigh of Yakkov is to show the fact that Yosef is taking an oath, swear.
