Giveaway: Shalom Sesame!

posted by Nell Minow

Twelve new episodes of “Shalom Sesame” are out on DVD, Welcome to Israel and Chanukah: The Missing Menorah. The creators of “Sesame Street” produce this series with Israel’s Channel HOP! to bring the vitality of Jewish culture and tradition and the diversity of Israeli life to American children and their families. The “Sesame Street” characters and guest stars like Debra Messing and Jake Gyllenhaal introduce children to Hebrew letters and words and Jewish values, mitzvot (good deeds), and holidays. The DVDs are supported with teaching materials.

I have one copy of each to give away to the first person who sends me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Shalom: Israel or Shalom: Chanukah in the subject line. Don’t forget to include your address!

    Thank you so much for posting this about Shalom Sesame. It is so important that children get the opportunity to see & learn about all types of beliefs & faiths. I have loved Sesame Street since it first aired way back when & my son watched it when he was growing up & now my grandchildren watch it & if I am fortunate, I will live to see my great grandchildren watch it too. & thank you again for the giveaway! That was a really nice thing to do. Have a wonderful day!
