Kriyah Coach is an outstanding gift for children. Do you have a child who’s learning to read Hebrew? Does he/she need to have lots of fun and stimulation? If so, this interactive DVD that teaches kids how to read Hebrew in a most fun and exciting way is going to be high priority on your gift list this Chanukah!

This incredibly multi-faceted DVD offers a brilliant combination of interactive games, high-quality animation, and an actual classroom setting featuring world-renowned kriayh specialist, Rabbi Henoch Potash of Yeshivah Darchei Torah.

Additionally, his speed at reading Hebrew will increase dramatically as he whizzes through the fun games brought to him by “The Alef-Beis Train” on this DVD.

And finally, we present Avraham Ben Avraham, a beloved classic that has been out of print for years, but now, at long last, has been reprinted—with a whole new look and an updated front cover. This beautifully-written historical novel, written by famous author Selig Schachnowitz, has been known to resonate deeply in the hearts of both teens and adults, as it dramatically brings to life the story of the legendary ger tzeddek of Vilna, set against the backdrop of the rich tapestry of Jewish life in the Ashkenazic communities of mid-eighteenth-century Europe. Treat your teenager, or yourself, to this tantalizing work…you’ll be amazed at its pull and its power.
