Synopsis: In this parashah play, Isaac and Rebecca raise their twins while building a nation, making peace with Avimelech but facing Philistine friction. Later, a bowl of soup gets Eisav out of the running while sending Jacob on the run. The PSA kids learn a little about Rachamim, the quality of Mercy, which, like Jacob's stew, is not strained.
Our downloadable parashah plays are the ultimate tools for fun Torah learning! And by acting out the scenes themselves, kids learn and remember the stories for future learning. Whether in class, junior congregation, or just having fun at home, Torah Time Live! gets teens living and breathing their Jewish tradition.
Each play dramatizes parts of a weekly Torah portion in funny scenes written for grades 5 and up. Each play also includes a public service announcement [PSA] featuring the continuing adventures of Mitzvah Man who teaches a middah [ethical lesson] to Tzipi and Shlomo, a pair of misbehaving siblings.
No preparation needed! Just hand out the copies, cast the parts, and off you go!
