Shaboom! combines the very best elements of children’s television with wisdom from Jewish traditions to teach everyday values through magic, comedy and silly songs.
“We are bringing what we love about great kids’ entertainment to Jewish education,” Sarah Lefton, Creative Director and Founder says. “I listened to so many parents tell me that they want a Judaism that goes beyond the holidays. I have kids, so I know—holidays are great, but what busy moms and dads care about is getting through the everyday.”
Shaboom! features “magical sparks” Gabi & Rafael who work to fix the world by helping out a regular family that makes a lot of meshuga (silly) mistakes. Each 10 minute episode focuses on a variety of everyday values like gratitude, saying I’m sorry, or helping others, plus teaches Hebrew vocabulary words with silly songs and goofy chants.
Watch this episode of Shaboom: Plotz Landing as Gabi and Rafael slide into a Jewish folktale and help two brothers learn about love and the appreciation of family. And along the way they learn the words to Hinei Ma Tov, a Jewish song about peace.
