“You shall teach it to your children” — and here’s a good start on how to do it. A gorgeous full-color folder that helps a new parent make the magical moments of bedtime into spevial Jewish moments.

The folder, written by Noam Zion and designed by Joe Buchwald Gelles, contains the full text of Sh’ma (thru v’ahavta) and the blessing that Jacob gave to his children (ha-malach ha-goeil oti) which has become the standard bedtime blessing in Jewish homes. All translated and transliterated.

On the back cover there is even more — ways to teach and talk, chase away bad dreams, and a suggestion for a Jewish lullaby.

A concise modern children’s haggadah (30-minute seder if that's what you're looking for!), this is a great family haggadah for beginners or anyone who spends seder night with children. Illustrated in a cartoon style and written in a light humorous manner.

“No cartoonist can match Richard Codor for his whimsical sense of humor and his understanding of the Jewish world. His Haggadah promises to bridge the greatest divide in the Jewish world: between adults and children. ”   — Alan M. Tigay, Executive Editor, Hadassah Magazine

“Jewish history wasn't this funny since Mel Brooks "2000 Year Old Man." Check out the Hebrew man tapping his foot nervously while waiting for the bread to rise in the convection oven while most of his tribe is already on the go. And, the little boy who just before crossing the Red Sea, stops to relieve himself near a cactus bush. And then there are the three Patriarchs (who knows three?) dancing the hora, and the four Matriarchs (who knows four?) doing the "walk like an Egyptian" move. My personal favorite is the Marx Brothers as the Four Sons - Groucho as the wise child and Harpo as the simple child. So why is this night different from all other nights? With this Haggadah on hand this night can be serious fun!”   — Hai Knafo (reviewer on amazon.com)

Fifty-four skits, one for every parsha! Each lasts from 5 to 10 minutes. The skits are high quality, and are a lot of fun for a Junior Congregation, religious school class, or seder.

There are small roles for pre-readers, and big roles for kids who can read well and even act a bit! It’s OK to use grownups for ringers too. Amazingly, the author manages to make fun skits even out of some pretty difficult sedras.

Adventures of Secret Agent Emes

by Leibel Cohen
$17.95 for each

I first saw “Agent Emes Epidode 2: Rabbi-Napped” at CAJE (a Jewish educators conference) a few years ago. The audience was cracking up. It’s an amateur film, a detective story whose hero is an 11-year-old yeshiva boy with a secret identity. It’s got enough slapstick to be amusing for very young children; and enough “kids world” to be engaging for older children who can identify with the hero or his family and classmates; and enough big ideas to engage adult viewers as well.
    It’s — incidentally but importantly — also a rare look inside the world of a yeshiva-bocher, sympathetic but realistic, that can be shown easily to non-Orthodox audiences. The pain-in-the-patootie kid sister, the sometimes clueless and sometimes wise father, the dedicated teacher, the class bully, are all here is a way that helps kids understand that “we are one” in a way that no amount of preaching can do.
    These films are definitely made from an Orthodox perspective. You may learn more that you’ll ever need to know about what makes a shofar kosher. But the primary focus is a Jewish take on what it means to be a mensch in the world, something that appeals across the Jewish spectrum.
    Each DVD comes with “special features” including some very funny blooper footage.
