Our large repertoire (and love of finding new tales!) has enabled us to create many programs for requested themes and settings. Scroll down for a partial list of the themes we have presented…

The Fox in the Vineyard – In this story from the Midrash, the greedy fox tries to sneak into the vineyard, but it costs him more to get the grapes than they are worth!

The Crowded House – A farmer complains to the rabbi that his house is too crowded, with hilarious results and a happy solution. An interactive story with finger puppets.

No Bears In Amherst – Bear is hungry and grumpy. It takes a Bubbe to realize that he’s actually lonely!

Rabbi Adam and the Magic Well – Rabbi Adam, a Jewish folk hero, rescues his people from the evil vizier in the tale from the classic folk tale book Miriam’s Tambourine. An interactive tale (kids hold puppets!) with finger and hand puppets.

Yankel the Dreamer – All Yankel wants is wealth! he follows his dreams, and learns that the importance of wealth is to be generous.
