Ki Tisa

Recommended for ages 9+

Parshat Ki Tisa is one of those animated shorts that you’ve gotta SEE it to believe it.

The Israelites are out in the desert, and apparently have nothing better to do than melt down all their jewelry to build a golden calf. Sarah Gershman gives an EYEbrow raising explanation of what went down one hot summer’s day at Sinai, through a psychological lens.

 

Gratitude for the Parshat Ki Tisa Animated Short

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 21 from Parshat Ki Tisa (כִּי תִשָּׂא “when you take” Exodus 30:11–34:35). 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 Ki Tisa including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Gershman, Sarah Lefton, and Matthue Roth. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
