The story of Yehuda and Tamar in ch.38 of Bereishit appears to interrupt the flow of the Yosef story which has started a chapter earlier and continues until the end of Bereishit. So what role does the story of Yehuda and Tamar play? Is it actually an interruption or does it perhaps hold the key to understanding the story of Yosef and his brothers as a whole, and in particular the development of Yehuda from villain to hero.
