Howard Schild asked:

Does any of the mefarshim connect the "Yaakov Avinu did not die" part to the part about the tree getting a beracha for shoots like it? Its obviuosly connected..just as they are alive he is alive... but does anyone say it to quote it?

The Kollel replies:

Have a look at Einei Shmuel here, and the KLI YAKAR (Bereishis 47:29). (I also saw such an approach by Rav Yitzchak Isaac Chaver, in Hashmatos printed in one of the volumes of the Vilna Shas, but I couldn't find it now.)

Take care,
