Celebrate Shavuot with Shalom Sesame

This video from Shalom Sesame tells the story of Moses receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai. This link from ReformJudaism.org offers discussion topics, activities and two more videos from “Shalom Sesame” all created to engage children in learning about Shavuot in a fun way. The videos teach children about harvesting wheat and introduce the customs of Shavuot, such as learning Torah all night and eating dairy foods. Put together by Jewish educators from the Reform movement, these are excellent resources for parents, teachers, and community organizers seeking original ways to teach children about the stories and rituals of Shavuot. Shalom Sesame is a cross-platform media initiative from the creators of Sesame Street developed to introduce American children to Jewish culture, Hebrew language and the diversity of Israel.
