Shemot

Recommended for ages 9+

A burning bush that talks would probably make most of us stutter, but Moses had a speech impediment even before his divine shrubbery encounter.

Why did G-d ask this shepherd “with a heavy tongue” to be a spokeman? Jason Lieberman, an advocate for the contemporary disabled, takes a stab at the answer.

 

Gratitude for the Parshat Shemot 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 13 from Parshat Shemot (שְׁמוֹת “names” Exodus 1:1–6:1). 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 Shemot including Tim Cosgrove, Isaac Everett, Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Lefton, Jason Lieberman, Matthue Roth and Jeanne Stern. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
