Chayei Sara

Recommended for ages 9+

Step into a desert oasis and get to know Rebecca as a young girl in Parshat Chayei Sara (Sarah).

What narrator Goldie Goldbloom wants to know is “Are you kind?” As kind as Rebecca, that is.

Parashat Chayei Sara will next be read publicly on November 11th, 2017

Parshat Chayei Sara Gratitude

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 5 from Parshat Chayei Sara (חַיֵּי שָׂרָה “life of Sarah”) in the annual reading cycle of Genesis 23:1–25:18.

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

Did you know that G-dcast has changed our name to BimBam?
