Torah & Texts

Organic farmer Emily Freed explains these biblical laws of the land in down-to-earth language. So get your hands, or at least your ears, dirty!

Behar Lesson Guide


By Jeremiah Lockwood

You probably already know that the Torah isn’t all rainbows and angels. Parshat Bechukotai will help remind you of this.

Bechukotai: Yavneh Day School Student Production

Bechukotai is a parsha we’ve animated before, but this short was created by the 5th grade students of Yavneh Day School in Los Gatos, California. Yavneh Day School students studied the text for Bechukotai, wrote the songs, performed them, played the guitar, drew the backgrounds, and made the storyboards.

Then the BimBam staff handled the animation and final production.
