Naso

Recommended for ages 12+

Hold onto your hats, this is a really crazy G‑dcast.

Parshat Naso is one of the oddest, most thorny episodes in the Bible involves a man who suspects his wife of adultery. Inbal Freund-Novick, an Israeli activist for women’s rights, tells the excruciatingly difficult tale of the accused wife in Parshat Naso. Hard to believe this stuff is in the Torah, but it’s undeniably fascinating.

 

Gratitude for the Parshat Naso 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 35 from Parshat Naso (נָשֹׂא — Hebrew for “lift up,” from the book of Numbers 4:21–7:89). 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 Naso including Inbal Freund-Novick, Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Lefton, and Matthue Roth. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
