Bechukotai

Recommended for ages 12+

You probably already know that the Torah isn’t all rainbows and angels. Parshat Bechukotai will help remind you of this.

Mirroring the angry tone of this week’s Torah story, G‑dcast gets kinda dark and cranky for a change. Jeremiah Lockwood sets the scene with moody guitars and a voice that draws you in…to vengeance.

 

Gratitude for the Parshat Bechukotai 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 33 from Parshat Bechukotai (בְּחֻקֹּתַי “by my decrees” Leviticus 26:3–27:34). 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.

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 Bechukotai including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Liesje Kraai, Sarah Lefton, Matthue Roth, and Jeremiah Lockwood. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
