Parshat Vayishlach 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! Parshat Vayishlach (וַיִּשְׁלַח “and he sent”) is the 8th weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual reading cycle of Genesis 32:4–36:43.

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 Vayishlach including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Dara Horn, Sarah Lefton, Colleen Macisaac, Matthue Roth, Gabe Schwartz and Evan Wolkenstein. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.
