Parshat Vayikra 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”) video is Episode 24 from Parshat Vayikra (וַיִּקְרָא “and He called” Leviticus 1:1–5:26). 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 Vayikra including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Maharat Rachel Kohl Finegold, Sarah Lefton, Matthue Roth, Jeanne Stern and Alan Jay Sufrin. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
