“Shaboom!,”an animated web series premiering on April 6, 2016, from non-profit G-dcast, combines the best elements of children’s television with wisdom from the Jewish tradition to teach everyday values to children through magic, comedy and silly songs. Each of the ten children’s episodes is accompanied by a separate video for parents that delves into the episode’s value, explaining “what’s Jewish” about it, and giving parents the knowledge and confidence to model the values for their children. The show was designed to showcase strategies for bringing the family closer together, and through using best practices from the secular parenting world about fostering the social and emotional learning that is key in early child development.
