Parshat Vayakhel is a musical piece about heart.

The Children of Israel brought what their hearts moved them to bring in the building of the first Sanctuary…and this week’s G‑dcast is brought to you from Alicia Jo Rabins’ heart. Tune in for a musical piece – about art – from a consummate musician and artist.


Gratitude for the Parshat Vayakhel 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 22 from Parshat Vayakhel (וַיַּקְהֵל “And he assembled” Exodus 35:1-38:20). 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 Vayakhel including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Lefton, Colleen Macisaac, Alicia Jo Rabins, and Matthue Roth. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
