We saw this film during Chanukah at a special screening for JCC members. In fact, it was the first movie that my 4 year old daughter ever saw in a theatre. It was AMAZING! The story relates the themes of Chanukah with the cast and set of Rechov Sum Sum ("Sesame Street" in Hebrew) only entirely in English. There were a lot of new characters and puppets that were unfamiliar, particularly the actual humans, but there were some familiar ones too -- Grover, Baby Bear, Telly. The film spliced in Israeli children talking about the story of Chanukah and the traditions associated with it, much like the American Sesame Street format.

The Count played his music organ to find out the number of the day (like in the American version), but I loved that as he hit the keys and counted the numbers in English, the organ pipes would sing the Hebrew numerical equivalent (achat, schtayim, shalosh, arbah.....all the way to 8-shemoneh--the obvious number of the day). The cartoon really illustrated the Chanukah story incredibly well and was very witty. I loved that Judah Maccabee asked for extra absorbent paper towels to help clean the temple. But what was really lovely about it was that it related how the oil lasted for 8 days.....UNTIL more oil could be brought to the Temple--something that people sometimes omit when telling the story. I mean, what is so special about the fact that it lasted for 8 days specifically unless you explain that later part? And the other really special thing in the cartoon was when Judah Maccabee looked at the lamp on the 8th day, and said: "Wow, the lamp is still burning! That must mean..." He paused, looked out the window, and finished "It's a Chanukah miracle!

Some of the clips are not Hanukkah related and others are re-used from other Sesame Street episodes.

But if you are looking for a very well done Jewish themed television show for children then you can't do any better! My 4-year-old daughter has declared this one of her favorite videos and we regularly play this even though Hanukkah is over!

My children LOVE the Shalom Sesame Missing Menorah DVD (and I like watching it too)! The DVD teaches children the background of Channukah and interesting facts, such as how to make oil. It shows scenes from Israel and even uses a few Hebrew words. The regular Sesame Street characters appear in the show and its format is similar to the regular Sesame Street programs.

My preschool-age children have seen the DVD over twenty times, even though we have only had the DVD for two weeks, and they love it. In fact, they are mesmarized by it! They laugh at all the jokes and seem interested in the educational content. I cannot recommend this video enough.
