Weekly Parsha: Vayechi

By Marcus J. Freed

After journeys, revelations, struggles and visions, our ancestors take stock of their blessings in this week’s parsha, the last one in Bereshit – closing out the book of Genesis. Marcus J. Freed – poet, teacher, playwright and actor – gives voice – or is that voices? – to the whole thing.

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”) This episode is from Parshat Vayechi (וַיְחִי – Hebrew for “and he lived”).
