Audio added to Learn English with Pictures

Hi Everyone!

This week I added audio to my website:
Learn English with Pictures

Learn English with Pictures (and Audio) is a free, online, resource to learn English words in a fun way. The site has over 400 words and photographs, ranging from animals to kitchen appliances. Beneath each photograph, there is an audio button to click and hear the word.

Both kids and adults, who are learning English, will find this educational website valuable and entertaining.

I welcome your feedback.

Educational resources for 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 Monday night, October 13, 2008.

The J Site - Jewish Education and Entertainment

has several entertaining features to celebrate Sukkot:

Jewish Trivia Quiz: Sukkot

What is the Hebrew date of the first day of Sukkot ?
What is another name for the Sukkot holiday ?
What does Sukkot commemorate ?
What is the minimum area of a Sukkah as defined in the Talmud ?
What is the maximum height of a Sukkah ?
What does the Aramaic word "Ushpizin" mean ?
Who gets called to the Torah reading on Simchat Torah ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice Flash quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings. Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.

Additional Sukkot resources and games on the J site include:
Free Sukkot Clipart
The Hebrew Hangman Game
The Multilingual Word Search Game (English / Hebrew / Russian)
My Hebrew Songbook (Hebrew Song Lyrics)
My Jewish Coloring Book (online / offline)

The J site has something for everyone, but if that is not enough, I posted on my website 62 links about Sukkot, from laws and customs to games and recipes. Site languages include English, Hebrew, Russian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Italian.

All 62 links have been reviewed / checked this week.
