Torah & Texts

Recommended for ages 9+


By Katie Mizrahi

Parshat Vaeira is possibly the best known Bible story, period. After Moses and Aaron (Moshe and Aharon) confront Pharoah with a rousing “Let My People Go!” there are weeks of frogs and hail and boils, but Rabbi Katie Mizrahi explains that those weren’t even the REAL plagues. Find out just what was afflicting those Israelites in this week’s story.

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 14 from Parshat Vaeira (וָאֵרָא “and I appeared” Exodus 6:2–9:35).
