Childrens Judaica — Get Your Kids Excited About Judaism!-sexinse

Home-and-Family When most people think of Judaica, they picture sterling silver menorahs, Kiddush cups, Seder plates, and books, books, books. Of course, all of these items fall under the Judaica umbrella, but it’s important to remember the Judaica products designed specifically for children! From toys to books and media to decorated Yarmulkes, children’s Judaica can be a great way to get young people excited about their religion. Young children can beef up on their knowledge of Jewish traditions with simple and fun toys designed just for them. For example, Aleph-Bet’s magnetic board and letters are colorful, easy tools created to familiarize children with the Jewish alphabet. Additionally, Kidkraft produces plastic holiday dinners themed around typical Passover, Rosh Hashana, and Shabbat meals – allowing children to learn about Jewish traditions while indulging in their love to imitate the "grown ups." Books, DVDs, and music are likewise fantastic resources to connect children with their faith. Some books are primarily informative, such as the Rabbi Mordecai Plaut’s text "6 Constant Mitzvos – A Young Child’s Guide to Faith and Belief," as well as "A First Book of Jewish Bible Stories" by Julie Downing. These will help your child understand what it means to be Jewish, in both past and present contexts. For some lighter reading, consider Rebecca Klempner’s "A Dozen Daises for Raizy – A Shavous Story" and Yael Mermelstein’s "A Car That Goes Far." Both of these books provide whimsical stories that encourage sharing and generosity. Music is another outstanding aspect of children’s Judaica, whether you plan to enjoy it as a family gathered around the stereo, or simply in the background as you drive your children to a soccer meet. For more than 30 years, the popular 613 Torah Avenue series has enchanted children and adults alike. Each volume follows the main character, Chaim, in a different environment, telling the story through alternating sketches and songs. 613 Torah Avenue features melodies from traditional Jewish tunes, in addition to drawing from folk and modern music – sounds like the perfect recipe for a diverse, educational experience in song! As for DVDs, children of all ages love the Agent Emes series, which explores fundamental Jewish concepts as encountered by the lovable title character. The first video, for example, follows Agent Emes as he tries to save Rosh Hashana from the evil Dr. Lo Tov, who has attempted to tarnish the ram’s horns. Children are on the edge of their seats as this .pelling mystery unravels, all the while learning about shofar, kosher habits, and one of our religion’s most important holidays. Another way to get children enthusiastic about their Jewish heritage is through their wardrobe. It’s easy to find a Judaica store stocked with hand-painted products featuring some of popular culture’s most beloved characters. For example, children can attend temple wearing suede or velvet yarmulkes decorated with images of Bob the Builder, Batman, Scooby Doo, Star Wars characters, and more. Or for something less .mercial, children’s kippahs are also available with paintings of dinosaurs, trains, and even the flag of Israel. Similarly, you can make wearing Tzitzits fun by selecting garments featuring the same whimsical adornments. So, next time you’re shopping a Judaica store for a new Kiddush cup, take a moment to remember the little ones at home. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
