This series of 40 videos covers each of the 40 perakim (chapters) in Sefer Shemot, the 2nd book of the Torah. While teaching 3rd grade at the Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy in Beverly Hills CA, I was challenged to teach the entire Sefer Shemot in a year, and actually have my students retain the knowledge. I found an inspired Jewish educator named Rabbi Jonathan Rietti and attended a training in his method called the “Chumash Memory System.” CLICK HERE to read more about it or purchase the products from Rabbi Rietti’s website. While I liked the content I needed a way for students to review it on their own and check each individual students comprehension. Then I stumbled upon two great “Tech Torah” tools “Explain Everything” an app which allows a teacher to record everything on the iPad screen, and Playposit.com which allows you to add questions to a video and assess comprehension. I used Rabbi Rietti’s art for from the system and animated it with my voice and movement on the app, and then uploaded the videos to Playposit.com for my students. At the end of a year I was able to quote a perek (chapter) and the students would tell me the story of that chapter. Even more impressive I was able to quote a pasuk (verse) and the students could identify which perek it was in! While I recognize that this approach to learning doesn’t work for everyone. I am making these videos available to help others especially now during school closures across the world and students looking for good online material. If the memory system part doesn’t appeal to you, you can simply watch the video up to the part where the “silly memory trick” is introduced (usually the last few minutes of the video), and you still have a good summary of the content. If someone would like to join my online class on playposit.com or help sponsor upgraded videos and hosting please reach out to me by email to rabbiwagshul@gmail.com.
