What Can the Old Teach the Young?

Growing up in the 50s and 60s, it was common to hear the expression, “generation gap.” In this week’s Torah portion, ויגש, Yosef’s brother, Yehuda, refers to their father, Yaakov, as אב זקן “ old father” and youngest brother, Benjamin, as ילד זקונים , “young child of his old age.” Both Rashi in his commentary and the Rambam in his Mishnah Torah refer at times to Yaakov as “the old one.”
