Shalom Sesame: It's Passover Grover
Watch Monday, April 14, 2014 at 11am on WMHT TV.
It’s time to celebrate Passover in Israel! Grover is setting the table, as Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, brings the latest edition of Shalom Sesame. This educational and entertaining feature is perfect for the holidays and finds the furry and loveable Grover with celebrity host Anneliese van der Pol (That’s So Raven, Broadway’s Beauty and the Beast) as they travel to Israel and celebrate Passover. Special guest appearance by Jake Gyllenhaal.
In “It’s Passover, Grover!,” all is well until Anneliese, Grover, and Avigail realize there is no horseradish to be found—just as Passover is about to begin! Can Annelise and her furry friends find the missing horseradish in time or will a tricky Oofnik get in their way? Designed to help bring the vitality of Jewish culture and tradition as well as the diversity of Israeli life to American children and their families, It’s Passover, Grover! will engage and entertain while highlighting Jewish cultural traditions and values.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to offer “It’s Passover, Grover!” to local PBS stations for children and families to enjoy this Spring,” says Veronica Wulff, Producer, Sesame Workshop. “This all-new Shalom Sesame production utilizes the charisma and attraction of the loveable Sesame Muppet friends to further teach children about Israel and Jewish culture.”
