Jewish holidays give us a chance to remember the significant history that has contributed to the survival and shaping of our Jewish identities today, and allow us to tap into the spiritual potential these times hold. These videos take a deep dive into the Jewish holidays, allowing you to uncover how these age-old celebrations and festivals are still relevant to our lives today.
17 Tammuz is the tragic start to the Three Weeks. According to our Sages, not only is it the day in which the walls of Jerusalem were shattered, four other major calamities happened which affected the Jewish people. What is their common link, and what does it tell us about how to think about this day?
Join us as we explore the life of King Chizkiah, focusing in on one fateful moment at the end of his reign, a tipping point moment laden with potential, but with disastrous consequences. If we can understand that moment, we’ll understand much about the events that we mourn on Tisha B’Av, the Destruction of Jerusalem – and, perhaps, we’ll understand much about the opposite of those events, the Messianic era itself.
Aleph Beta’s mission is to create relevant Jewish learning, to help people achieve answers that are meaningful and satisfying for their everyday life. Our Torah videos and guides help you look at some of life’s biggest questions, by taking you on a deep journey through the text of the Torah. We believe Torah study should be evidence-based, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally gripping.
Through animated Torah Videos and a multisensory experience, Aleph Beta helps bring Torah to life. The introspective content appeals to sophisticated audiences, but the animated style works to engage even young or beginner audiences. Our students should decide for themselves what they believe is compelling, and in this way, we strive to keep our Torah study honest and compelling.
Aleph Beta is a nonprofit organization, funded with the help of dedicated supporters. For a membership fee of $9 a month, more than 7,000 members help us bring the Torah to life. Together with our world-renowned educators, Aleph Beta is building an online library to make the amazing messages in the Torah available to students all over the world. Join our mission today!
