Summary of Today's Chumash
In the second aliyah Pharaoh describes his dream to Yosef, and Yosef interprets the dream about the cows and the ears as one dream. The seven good cows and ears mean that seven years of plenty are coming to Egypt, while the seven skinny cows and ears means that seven years of famine will follow and befall Egypt. Yosef then proposed a plan of putting away part of the produce of the good years to use during the years of famine. This greatly impresses Pharaoh.
