Wake Up! at the Jewish Community Library with the PJ Library®

Spin Me a Shadow, and Tell Me a Tale!
A shadow puppet show with Daniel Barash
FREE and all ages are welcome! 

Discover the world of shadow puppetry as we weave a tale about the beauty of giving! Daniel Barash, a local favorite and founding director of THE SHADOW PUPPET WORKSHOP will perform his shadow puppet version of a beloved Jewish folktale called "Challahs in the Ark". Children will love this story of love, family, and lending a helping hand. Children and parents can also make their very own shadow puppets, view them behind the shadow screen and take them home to continue the puppet fun! For more information about Daniel Barash and Shadow Puppet Workshop,
