Rosh Hashanah is approaching quickly, and Jewish families everywhere are thinking about a sweet new year. Families are reading together their High Holiday-related PJ Library books and preparing to celebrate the holiday.
In addition to PJ Library materials, there are a number of fun ways parents and children can explore the Jewish values and traditions associated with Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur via the Internet.
Shalom Sesame's YouTube channel is an obvious bookmark. For a sample of the many holiday-related videos available from Shalom Sesame, watch the videos below. These live-action stories are great for families looking to spend a few more minutes thinking about the High Holidays as they approach.
