Weekly Parsha Resources

Families often ask us for our favorite resources to learn about the weekly Parsha (Torah portion read each week).

This is a selection of some of our favorite websites to help your family learn together and ask more Torah questions (Hershey’s Kisses optional).

Devash

Hadar’s Devash is a weekly parasha magazine that makes learning Torah sweet. By engaging directly with texts and taking kids seriously as Jews, Devash helps children and grownups discover new ideas, values, and sweet morsels in the weekly Torah portion. Devash is designed for kids aged 7-11 to read independently, or together with families and teachers.  Many of us, in the Ramah community, use these online and in print magazines around our own Shabbat tables. Hadar also produces a wonderful Torah podcast for kids called ‘Torah Time’, hosted by Adira and her mom, Rabbi Miriam-Simma.
