Chayei Sarah

By Goldie Goldbloom

Step into a desert oasis and get to know Rebecca (Rivkah) as a young girl in Parshat Chayei Sarah, and how she comes to meet Isaac (Yitzchak.) Narrator Goldie Goldbloom talks about kindness, as exemplified by the matriarch as a young woman. She weaves a classic midrash from the medieval commentator Rashi into this look at the parsha.

Abraham Buys the Cave of The Patriarchs

Parshat Chayei Sarah relates the story of Abraham’s purchase of the Cave of The Patriarchs (Ma’arat Hamachpela) in Hebron. The site today remains a holy place to both Jews and Muslims who believe that it is the final resting place of Abraham, Sarah, and their extended family.

In this video, the BimBam team worked with the 2016 B’nai Mitzvah class at B’nai Jeshurun in Pepper Pike, Ohio  to bring the story to life. These are their words and interpretations, voices and artwork.
