Summary of Today's Chumash
In the second aliyah Yehuda continues to speak to Yosef about Binyamin. He says that if Binyamin doesn't come back with the brothers, their father Yakov will die. Yehuda offers that Yosef take himself (Yehuda) as a servant instead of Binyamin. At this point Yosef can't restrain himself any longer and finally reveals himself to his brothers with the words "Ani Yosef" (I am Yosef!). He tells them to not be upset about selling him down to Egypt, because as a result, he is in a position to sustain his family during these years of famine.
