  • Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA, 94115 United States (map)

Dira Le'haskir returns to the Library!

In this lively and acrobatic performance by Peter Olson and Ilan Vitemberg of Up-a-Tree Puppetry,  children will learn what it takes for different animals to live together in peace and harmony. Especially for children ages 2 to 6 and their families, this program is based on renowned author Leah Goldberg’s book Dira Le’haskir, a favorite story for generations of Israeli families. Peter Olson is a Bay Area puppeteer who makes puppets, sets, and stories for children of all ages. Ilan Vitemberg is the Director of Educational Support Services at Jewish LearningWorks,  a performer, and a member of the Up-a- Tree Puppetry troop. This program will be in the Hebrew language without translation.

Presented by the Israel Education Initiative of Jewish LearningWorks and co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Library, the Israeli House of the Consulate General of Israel, and the World Zionist Organization-Department of Diaspora Activities.
