San Francisco, CA – Shaboom! – an innovative animated 10-part web series from nonprofit BimBam (formerly G-dcast) – combines the best elements of children’s television with wisdom from the Jewish tradition to teach everyday values to children through magic, comedy and silly songs. The first episode, available now at BimBam.com/shaboom, is on the theme of “Hachnasat Orchim” – Welcoming Guests. The show also available on YouTube.
Shaboom! episodes feature the “magical sparks” Gabi & Rafael who work to fix the world, while focusing on that episode’s theme. Each of the ten children’s episodes (about 8 minutes each) is accompanied by a separate video for parents (2 minutes each) that delves into each episode’s value, explaining “what’s Jewish” and instilling in parents the knowledge and confidence to model the values for their children. Communities around the country also are holding family events over the next weeks and months to watch the episodes together.
