OMGWTFBIBLE: Oh My God, Still With the Plagues?

Locusts! They’re also kosher. Read More

By / October 30, 2014

We really shouldn’t be making light of plagues these days, but that’s where OMGWTFBIBLE is up to in the Torah, so we don’t really have a choice. This month, meet Rishe Groner, an Australian with a Chabad background and more knowledge about the Torah than David Tuchman or Rashi or God or your Hebrew school teacher could’ve expected.

The third portion of Exodus, which we call “Come,” kicks off with a plague of very annoying insects. But first, Rishe tells us how much of a whirlwind the past month has been. And David invents a Simchat Torah-appropriate parody song on the spot. Listen to it all below!

David Tuchman translated the Tanakh as a comedy and called it OMGWTFBIBLE. Each month on his podcast, he calls up a different guest to read as many chapters of OMGWTFBIBLE as they can while they both make fun of it.

Jewcy is the proud (internet) co-host of OMGWTFBIBLE. Read more about the project here, and listen to previous episodes here.

Check back here in a week for the next installment of OMGWTFBIBLE. David will be reading the next live show with Michael Schreiber at Beauty Bar on November 24!
