Reuven at the Sale of Yosef


Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

11 Shevat 5765
If Reuven was not at the sale of Yosef and his brothers took a vow not to reveal what happened, how did Reuven know Yosef was sold and not killed?
The Midrash (Tanchuma Vayeshev 2) says that the oath they took was not to tell Yaakov, Reuven therefore was allowed to know.
