The Noach Page


Hi Everyone!

I updated the Noach Page which has links to children parsha pages, commentary pages, English-Hebrew "animals" vocabulary, songs, humor items, and a section on Noach stamps, graphics and clipart. The page also includes Noach word search game pages in three languages.

The address is:

In addition to the main Noach page, I have a humor section with a collection of Noach Cartoons from around the net:

Enjoy and please share the pages with friends. Thank you!

Have a good day!

Educational Resources, Videos and a Cool Photo Gallery about Sukkot


Hi Everyone!

Sukkot is the Jewish holiday that commemorates how protective "Clouds of Glory" surrounded the Jewish people after leaving Egypt during the forty years of wandering in the desert. It also commemorates how the Jews lived in temporary dwellings during that same time. Sukkot begins Wednesday evening, October 4, 2017.

All the links and resources below are posted on the Sukkot resources page at:
