Synopsis: In this play, Jacob wrestles a mysterious messenger, Leah stays cranky, Rachel keeps cool, and Eisav...well, we'll just have to see about him. In the PSA, Mitzvah Man gives the kids a lesson in Mechila, Forgiveness, though he's not sure it sinks in.
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!
