Torah & Texts

Recommended for ages 9+


By Evan Wolkenstein

There’s so much to see in this week’s parsha Vayera that Evan Wolkenstein, experiential educator, decides to zoom in and focus on the story of two relatively minor characters: Hagar and Ishmael. Learn about their journey into the desert and what they find there.

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”) Episode is from Parshat Vayera (וַיֵּרָא “and He appeared”) in the annual reading cycle of Genesis 18:1-22:24.
