About the Program

Zaide Makes Challah: Puppet Show with Jen Miriam Altman
Sunday, June 1
Laugh uproariously as Zaide (grandfather) attempts to make challah for Shabbat. The only problem is . . . he doesn’t know how to cook very well, and he can’t see well enough to read the recipe. This show rates high on the laugh meter. Kids will have a chance to meet and greet with the puppets at the end of the show.

Rainbow Shadows: Celebrating Family with Shadow Puppets
Sunday, June 22
In honor of SF Pride Month, join shadow puppeteer Daniel Barash for a performance and puppet-making workshop that celebrates family inall its diversity.
