Jewish Programs

Our programs for major holidays and celebrations feature Jewish folktales, biblical stories and skits that highlight traditions and rituals that are meaningful for young children.

Caravan has a strong, and long-standing connection to Jewish folklore and education.

As well as decades of performances, Jonathan Keezing taught music and creative movement in Jewish settings for many years. This provided a fantastic opportunity to develop Caravan’s repertoire of Jewish stories and music.

We find our stories in jewish folklore, biblical tales parables and Jewish literature
