The Book of Life on Passover, April 2006

MP3 File

This episode of The Book of Life, a show about Jewish people and the books we read, features many books and CD's that would make great Afikomen gifts! I'm including age recommendations to help you select the right gifts for the kids at your seder.

In this episode, we hear from:
* Jean Marzollo, author of Miriam and Her Brother Moses and other Bible stories [Preschool - Grade 2]
* Shira Kline, musician, on her new CD Shirlala Pesach! (If you live in NY, you might want to go to the CD Release Party on April 2 at the Manhattan JCC - check Shira's website) [Preschool - Grade 3]
* Anna Olswanger, author of Shlemiel Crooks [Grades 3-5]
* Steve Brodsky of Mah Tovu, on the hit single Pharoah Pharoah, a parody of Louie Louie [ALL ages, including teens]* CBI Student Brittany Paris reviews The Yarmulke, Kippah, Coppel Book by Rifka Freidman, with a little help from Rabbi Robert Silvers [Preschool]
* Bonus Track: Pesaschtick, a collection of family Passover songs and parodies by CBI's Cantor Stephanie Shore, Music Director Susan Shane-Linder and congregant Deborah Silver [All ages]

Background music is provided by The Freilachmakers Klezmer String Band.

All books and CD's mentioned on the show may be borrowed from the Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel. Browse our online catalog to reserve books, post a review, or just to look around!
