Joseph

Q. How old was Joseph when his father died? [Andrew aged 8]
A. Joseph was 56 when his father Jacob died.  Joseph was 17 when sold by his brothers and was re-united with his father after 22 years.  The Torah tells us that Jacob arrived in Egypt aged 130 and lived for 17 years there before he died.  That means that Joseph was 56 when his father died. [Children's Rabbi]
