Join lovable, furry Grover and celebrity host Anneliese van der Pol (That’s So Raven, Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast)as they travel to Israel to meet new people and learn new things in this 12-part DVD series co-produced by Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, and Israel’s Channel HOP! Designed to help bring the vitality of Jewish culture and tradition as well as the diversity of Israeli life to American children and their families, each 30-minute, live-action and animated DVD will focus on storylines drawn from Jewish cultural traditions, highlighting lessons on Hebrew letters and words, unique sites in Israel, and Jewish values.
Initial titles in the launch include “Welcome to Israel” and “Chanukah: The Missing Menorah” and will be available nationwide on DVD October 5, 2010. Future titles will be released beginning January 2011 and, through familiar and new Sesame Street characters, celebrities and stories, viewers will learn about Jewish traditions, culture and holidays. Aspects of Jewish life such as celebrating Shabbat, exploring Jewish values and mitzvot, and the Hebrew alphabet will be introduced, along with holidays such as Purim, Passover, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Chanukah: The Missing Menorah :
It’s time to celebrate Chanukah in Israel! Grover’s bringing the latkes and all is well until Anneliese gets caught in a game of tag with a chicken and loses her special menorah …just as Chanukah is about to begin! Can her friends find the missing menorah in time? Guest appearance by Debi Mazar.
Everyone loves Sesame Street! What a fun way for children to learn about Chanukah & a little bit about the history behind it. And to further enrich and engage Jewish children and foster their Jewish identity. We enjoyed these movies together - they got Julien asking lots of questions, which is always good. Some of his questions I had to research to answer which is good for me too!
Perfect gift for any child - great for teaching about another culture & it's traditions :))
