Hanukkah Puppet Show Videos: Fractured Fables

The Hanukkah Cow


This puppet adaptation of "Hanukkah Bear" begins when a hibernating cow is awoken by the delicious smells of latkes and immediately goes in search of the source. An old, poor-sighted woman hears a knock at her door. She thinks it's the Rabbi arriving for a special Hanukkah meal. The strange mooing sounds the "Rabbi" makes cause her to worry for his health, but she happily feeds him all the latkes he wants.


Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins



Hershel is weary from his long travels and is happy to see a nearby village where he can spend the first night of Hanukkah. However, he is surprised to find no menorah candles have been lit. A villager tells him of the terrible goblins who ruin every Hanukkah and the task of breaking their evil curse is an impossible one. But brave and clever Hershel is willing to take the challenge to save Hanukkah.


It Could Always Be Worse



A poor man lives in a tiny home with his complaining wife and boisterous children. He can't take the chaos anymore and runs to the Rabbi for advice on what to do. It is advice that he wasn't expecting and soon regrets taking.


Performed 12-21-14 at Bank Street Bookstore. Puppeteer: Rebecca Migdal. Accompanist: Andy Laties. Camera: Nere Kapiteni.
