Masei

Recommended for ages 9+

Whether you’re a country mouse or a city mouse, it’s nice to know where home is.

But in Parshat Masei when the Israelites get to the Promised Land, everyone is going to get home turf…except the Levites! Tune in to learn from city planner Jill Slater about how the Levites get taken care of.

 

Gratitude for the Parshat Masei 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 43 from Parshat Masei (מַסְעֵי — Hebrew for “journeys,” from the book of Numbers 33:1–36:13).

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