From Sesame Street workshop comes a new DVD series- Shalom Sesame. It sets out to teach kids about Jewish culture and Israel. In the new Welcome to Israel and Chanukah: The Missing Menorah DVDs, some of the Sesame Street gang will teach you all about the Jewish culture. These DVDs also feature American and Israeli celebrities Debra Messing, Achinoam Nini, Mira Awad, Jake Gyllenhaal, Christian Applegate, Greg Kinnear, Debi Mazar and other big name talents.
Grover hosts with celebrity, Anneliese van der Pol, and they travel to Israel to meet new people, make new friends, and learn many things about the country. Throughout the DVDs you will learn Jewish cultural traditions, have lessons on Hebrew letters and words, see unique sites in Israel and learn about Jewish values too.
Shalom Sesame is not just for TV. They have also launched a website for uses at school and home at www.ShalomSesame.org. It will have content such as activities, games, videos, caregiver tips and activity suggestions for educators. This new website plus the DVDs is a great way for a Jewish child to learn more about their own culture, and it's also wonderful that other non-Jewish children (and maybe a few adults) can learn about it as well.
I like to raise a well-rounded child, and learning about new things is always a great way to achieve that. This new series from Sesame Street does a great job in teaching us about Israel and the Jewish culture. To be honest, I learned more than my son did, I think. But as he watches it more, I'm sure he'll pick up more things. It really was fun to see some of Israel and learn about their culture in Welcome to Israel. And in Chanukah: The Missing Menorah we learned all about the approaching Chanukah holiday. It was perfect for this time of year.
