Acharei Mot

Recommended for ages 12+

If Nadav and Avihu, two of Aaron’s sons, were killed for incorrectly approaching God, what chance do the rest of us have to do it right?

Jana Jett Loeb delves into the need for a patient engagement with those we love — and how that’s better than bringing fire of our own.

 

Gratitude for the Parshat Acharei Mot Video

Each week, a different storyteller – some musical, some poetic, some just straight-up, tell the story of the current weekly Torah portion…and then we animate it! This particular Parashat haShavua (פָּרָשַׁת הַשָּׁבוּעַ or “weekly Torah portion”) video is Episode 29 from Parshat Acharei Mot (אַחֲרֵי מוֹת “after the death” Leviticus 14:1–15:33). Jewish interpretation is often very specific. There are a myriad of Jewish subcultures and people, and the interpretations in this series explores the array of thoughts that our diverse set of storytellers and contributors have on Torah. To see more of the videos in this series, please take a look at our collection here on our site or on our YouTube channel!

A very special thank you to each of the writers, narrators, producers, directors, sound engineers, musicians, educational advisors, artists and animators that contributed to this particular animated interpretation of Parshat Acharei Mot including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Liesje Kraai, Sarah Lefton, Matthue Roth, and Jana Jett Loeb. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
