Open Sesame! Welcomes Children with Special Needs This Sunday

Grover in IsraelSixteen JCCs from Texas to Long Island, New York are welcoming children with special needs, as well as their siblings and friends, to watch a special screening of Shabbat Shalom, Grover! The program, coordinated with Matan, an organization dedicated to bringing the wealth of Jewish life to all children, has been designed to suit children with different sensory and cognitive capabilities. The video is part of the Shalom Sesame series. In December, JCC Association organized a special screening of The Missing Menorah, Shalom Sesame’s Hanukkah video, for more than 120 JCCs.

In addition to watching the film, children will do projects, including making a challah cover.
