"Torah Time Live!" parashah plays are for:

The Jewish Home

Rainy day?  Playdate?  Local drama club?  Whatever’s going on in your Jewish home, “Torah Time Live!” parashah plays are fun, Torah-based activities requiring no preparation and no real supervision [though they’re really fun to watch!]  And there’s no better way for your child and their friends to learn Torah stories by acting them out, a method that allows them to internalize both the events and the morals of the characters.  They’re light-hearted yet respectful of Torah, and the plays can be done with 2 kids or 10 kids, as a game or using the discussion questions, using costumes and props or just on the spur-of-the-moment.  It’s always a fun and energetic way for them to learn with “Torah Time Live!”
 

The Kikayon Shabbat Siddur is for:

The Jewish Home

The Kikayon Siddur is more than just a Shabbat morning prayer book.  It has creative activities that get kids thinking about Torah, about prayer, and about their personal relationship with G-d.  As a siddur, it helps train teens to lead their own service.  As a resource, it provides countless opportunities for exploring the t’fillot and the choreography of the service, taking the mystery out of why we stand up here or bow down there.  Use the Kikayon Siddur at home as a go to for preparing your child for a long day at synagogue, filling them with new-found trust in the service and respect for their Jewish legacy.
Coming 2017!
 

The Kikayon Shabbat Machzor is for:

The Jewish Home

Do you dread the High Holidays?  Kids take out every excuse in the world to delay getting out the door for synagogue.  Once you finally get to your seats, they are twitchy with a capital “Sit still!”  And that’s just the kids who don’t disappear into the building, not to be found until deep into Kiddush.  With our Machzor, your kids will learn about the High Holidays – the prayers, the themes, the lessons of Repentence – all the while garnering a greater respect and appreciation for synagogue services. 
 
The Kikayon Machzor takes our Shabbat siddur to the next level.  It has creative activities that get kids thinking about Torah, about prayer, and about their personal relationship with G-d.  As a siddur, it helps train teens to lead their own service.  And it takes the mystery out of why we stand up here or bow down there.  The Kikayon Machzor fills them with new-found trust in the service and respect for their Jewish legacy.

The Kikayon Haggadah is for:

The Jewish Home

For most of us, Pesach is arguably the most home-oriented Jewish holiday there is.  But whatever your traditions – whether you’re just cleaning the house or turning the whole thing over – the joy of running a seder can also become your greatest undoing.  So much to do and prepare, especially the food, we often forget the most important focus of the seder: the kids.  These are the kids who watch you running around, wanting to help but often feeling sidelined.  So how do you turn this all around?
 
We have the haggadah you’ve been looking for. The Kikayon Haggadah gets kids into doing the seder, gives them skits and songs they can perform, and encourages them to lead.  With a mix of traditional text, fun skits, and parody songs, the Kikayon Haggadah does more than just update old-fashioned haggadot.  Just like our Siddur and Machzor, our Haggadah uses creative and open activities to teach preteens and post-b’nai mitzvah kids how to lead their own seder.  Written at their level, age-appropriate for them but respectful and entertaining enough for the whole family, our Haggadah provides the perfect balance between old and new.
