By Helen Chernikoff

Just the facts, ma’am. Reporter Helen Chernikoff digs into the statistics of the Israelite census in Parshat Bemidbar and tells us some interesting stories about the people who were wandering in the desert – much more than just their ages and occupations.

Take a look bemidbar – in a desert – and see what you can learn about people.

Prophets

Prophets is the English name for the books of the Hebrew Bible called Nevi'im in Hebrew. We have animated many stories from the Books of Joshua and Judges (Shoftim) and look forward to adding more storytelling in the future on these epic stories.

Writings

Writings is the English name for the books of the Hebrew Bible, or Tanach, called Ketuvim in Hebrew. These animated shorts bring to life some of the texts in this rich book - from Megillat Esther to Megillat Ruth, from Mishlei (Proverbs) and from Tehillim (Psalms.)

Talmud

Talmud is the encyclopedic code of Jewish oral law and important commentaries on it. It is replete with not just legal writing but also storytelling - of varied types: moralistic, historical and fantastical. In these videos, we have brought to life some of the Talmud's "Greatest Hits" - stories that are frequently taught to illustrate a point in Jewish law, or to teach an important value. We're very proud of these videos, not just for sharing the stories effectively, but for adding a new layer of artistic interpretation to the millenia-old, still evolving, original hypertext document.
