Torah Trivia from the Parsha this week:

Last week’s question: What exceptional item did Moshe take with him from Mitzrayim?

Answer:  The bones of Yoseph. Because Yoseph made his brothers swear that when they left Mitzrayim they would take his bones with them.

This week’s question: What were the names of Moshe’s wife and sons?
