Parshat Vaeira is possibly the best known Bible story, period.

A rousing “Let My People Go!” kicks off weeks of frogs and hail and boils, but Rabbi Katie Mizrahi explains that those weren’t even the REAL plagues. Find out just what was afflicting those Israelites in this week’s story.


Gratitude for the Parshat Vaeira 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 14 from Parshat Vaeira (וָאֵרָא “and I appeared” Exodus 6:2–9:35). 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 Vaeira including Barbara Barza, Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Lefton, Rachel Levinson, Russel Neiss, Matthue Roth, Jeremy Shuback, Jeanne Stern and Rabbi Katie Mizrahi. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
