Vayechi

Recommended for ages 9+

After journeys, revelations, struggles and visions, our ancestors take stock of their blessings in this week’s parsha, the last one in Bereshit – closing out the book of Genesis. Marcus J. Freed – poet, teacher, playwright and actor – gives voice – or is that voices? – to the whole thing.


 
Parashat Vayechi will next be read publicly on December 30th, 2017
 

Parshat Vayechi 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 Vayechi (וַיְחִי – Hebrew for “and he lived”).

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 Vayechi including Barbara Barza, Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Sarah Lefton, Rachel Levinson, Kevin Macleod, Evan Wolkenstein, Marcus J. Freed, Russel Neiss, Matthue Roth, Jeremy Shuback, and Jeanne Stern.
