Hebrew School

Season 3, Episode 4: Shabbat

Raise a glass of grape juice to Sivan for being an incredible contestant on our Shabbat episode!

October 31, 2022

Light the candles, bake that challah, and pour out some grape juice, because this week’s Hebrew School is all about Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest! Our kid contestant Sivan plays three games all about Shabbat, “Prayer or Pop Song,” “Emet, Emet, Sheker” (Two Truths and a Lie), and “Eavesdropping on History.” Our Shabbat guests include comedian Joel Chasnoff, storyteller Peninnah Schram, and Lenny Solomon with our house band Shlock Rock.

The fun doesn’t stop when the episode ends. The Jewish Education Project has created additional games and activities for families, as well as resources for educators to use our podcast in the classroom.
