"...we are not about to give up on the Holy City of
Shechem: Abraham's first stop in the Land of Israel, and the
place of receiving the Torah in the time of Joshua with
Blessings and Curses.
"Joseph's has suffered through many generations of Exile.
He is a builder, and has much patience. We say 'Od Yoseph Chai!'
(Joseph still lives!) Joseph will stay buried in the 'portion of
the field' that his father, Jacob, purchased in Shechem, and
we will return to him."
