Parshat Vayeshev helps everyone remember Joseph. Yeah, you know, the many-colored-coat guy.

Well, it seems to bring out the nasty in a bunch of Original Ganstas – Joseph’s bros. Hip Hop artist Daniel Silverstein (aka Danny Raphael) lays down the story in rhyme.

Parashat Vayeshev will next be read publicly on December 9th, 2017

Parshat Vayeshev 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 animated short is Episode 9 from Parshat Vayeshev (וַיֵּשֶׁב “and he lived” Genesis 37:1–40:23).

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 Vayeshev including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Daniel Silverstein aka Danny Raphael, Matthue Roth, Marc Specter, Jeanne Stern, Sarah Lefton, Colleen Macisaac, and Evan Wolkenstein. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
