Daniel
Brooklyn, NY

“I love the Sukkot cartoon and song! I accidentally walked through a Hasidic neighborhood and there were these huts along the sidewalk and people selling those branches. I had no idea what was going on but it really seemed joyous. Only after I got home did I read up on what it was all about.”

“I said excitedly to my students – ‘There’s a new G‑dcast!’ and they all surrounded me to watch… I gave a quick introduction and put it on the projector. The whole class stopped their free time to gather round and watch.”

“G‑dcast is an awesome tool to introduce the parsha when I teach 4th graders. It’s especially a godsend to teach difficult parshas like the rules of animal sacrifice.”

“Simply put, I love G‑dcast animations because they are a great doorway into a discussion of the Torah. It is part of our homework each week because it is engaging, entertaining, and authentic!”
