Parshat Miketz is positively dreamy. From cows to corn, this story is full of enigmatic clues to what’s up in Egypt. Sociologist Tobin Belzer brings us inside the brain of the great dream interpreter: Joseph.

Parashat Miketz will next be read publicly on December 12th, 2015

Parshat Miketz 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”) Episode is from Parshat Miketz (מִקֵּץ – Hebrew for “at the end”) in the annual Torah reading cycle of Genesis 41:1–44:17.

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 Miketz including Tim Cosgrove, Isaac Everett, Nick Fox-Gieg, Jeanne Stern, Tobin Belzer, Sarah Lefton, Matthue Roth, and Evan Wolkenstein. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
