In Parasha Vayechi, Jacob blesses his sons and grandsons, Ephraim and Manasseh.
Jacob blesses Ephraim and Manasseh.
Translation of Hebrew (Genesis 48, 14):
"And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon the head of Ephraim, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the first-born."
Jacob's sons gather together to receive his blessing.
Translation of Hebrew (Genesis 49, 1):
"And Jacob called unto his sons, and said: 'Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the end of days."
