Hebrew School

Season 3, Episode 2: Tzedakah

Nachshon teaches us all about the importance of giving to charity. What a mensch!

September 19, 2022

Our kid contestant Nachshon teaches us all about tzedakah, the Hebrew word for charity! Donating money, volunteering at a food pantry, donating toys, and providing warm clothing to those in need are all great ways to give tzedakah. Nachshon plays three games: “Say My Name,” “Prayer or Pop Song?” and “Do We Do That?” Also featuring Hebrew School storyteller Peninnah Schram and Lenny Solomon with our house band Shlock Rock, this episode will leave you inspired and excited to learn more about the mitzvah of tzedakah!
