Disclosure: I am a PBS KIDS Ambassador and I was invited to this Sesame Workshop event, however, was unable to attend. Just wanted to share some exciting news from Sesame Workshop for those learning the Hebrew alphabet.
Shalom Sesame a new series of 22, two-minute clips, each featuring a letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The segments, which are now being rolled-out on shalomsesame.org and the Shalom Sesame YouTube channel, feature an animated disco-dancing Grover as he highlights a Hebrew letter along with four Hebrew vocabulary words starting with that letter.
Check out this Shalom Sesame clip.
Shalom Sesame is a multimedia project for children ages 2-8 that is designed to engage families across the spectrum of observance and identity with content surrounding Israeli and Jewish heritage and celebrations.
Additionally, Grover will be celebrating Israel this weekend on Sunday, June 1st by making special visits to the broadcasters’ booth during the Celebrate Israel Parade in New York City.
