Eliana Light and Matt Bar from Bible Raps lay it down in Parshat Matot.

This week’s parsha is about the tribes who ask Moses if they can stay on the far side of the Jordan when the Israelites go in to settle the Promised Land. A deal is struck. Check it.


Gratitude for the Parshat Matot 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 42 from Parshat Matot (מַּטּוֹת — Hebrew for “tribes,” from the book of Numbers Numbers 30:2-32:42). 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 Matot including Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Lefton, Matthue Roth, Jeanne Stern, Colleen MacIsaac, Jeremy Shuback, Rachel Levinson, Barbara Barza, Matt Bar, and Eliana Light. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
