Now children, ages 6-11, can explore the magic of Shabbat on their own terms with Shabbat Interactive

This digital experience helps children make meaning of all the core elements of Jewish identity

Shabbat Interactive is a nine-module interactive experience that lets children discover Shabbat by creating a digital book to show each day of Creation (with an option to print it out); hear the Ten Commandments in Hebrew and English to discover why we light two candles on Shabbat; virtually set a Shabbat dinner table (they first clean up digitally!); solve a candle-lighting puzzle; learn all the Shabbat blessings including Havdalah; find clues to create an online oneg "pizza," and much more. 

In the first three modules children discover the history of Shabbat:

  • The first Shabbat (Creation)
  • Shabbat in the Ten Commandments
  • Shabbat in the Desert

In the other six modules children explore the traditions of Shabbat

  • Preparing for Shabbat
  • Candle lighting
  • Welcoming Shabbat
  • Celebrating Friday night
  • Enjoying Shabbat (board game)
  • Saying goodbye to Shabbat (Havdalah)

Jewish Interactive is a non-profit organization that creates interactive Jewish programs to make Torah more relevant, accessible, and alive to Jewish educators, children, and parents globally. Shabbat Interactive is originally priced at $9.99 for families, but with Behrman House you can download hours of fun in the Online Learning Center or in your Behrman House account for FREE
