Shavuot is a Jewish festival that begins at sunset on Saturday, June 11 and ends (outside of Israel) after dark on Monday, June 13, 2016. If you are looking for a way to engage with kids during Shavuot or want to teach a friendly grownup about the holiday: G‑dcast has you covered.

Shavuot Music Video on The Book of Ruth

The Book of Ruth (in Hebrew מגילת רות‎, meaning the Scroll of Ruth) is traditionally read by Jews on Shavuot. Singer-songwriter Alicia Jo Rabins took the story and turned it into a delicate song.

Shavuot Kids’ Sing Along on the Ten Commandments

The 10 Commandments (in Hebrew עשרת הדברים, meaning the ten sayings) are brought to life for Shavuot. Singer-songwriter Naomi Less designed this rocking, fun kids sing-along to help teach about each of the Ten Commandments.
