ל׳ באדר א׳ ה׳תשע״ו (March 10, 2016)
Book of Esther HD (in Hebrew only), a special edition of Megillat Esther decorated with original artworks from Malchut Waxberger Gallery, includes sounds and interactive animations, seems to be a great gift for children.
It got a Hebrew interface but even without the knowledge of the language you’ll be able to make out what’s what (just to make it even easier – the first line of the menu is the text of Megilat Esther with illustrations, the second one – just the illustrations, the third one – just the text, the last two lines are the blessings: before and after the reading of The Book of Esther).
If you know the story, the illustrations should encourage the children to listening to it and help you with explaining kids the very idea of the holiday. It can be a good starting point in explaining children that Judaism is something more than just a bunch of several million Jews spinning round somewhere in the desert.
The application includes
- The Complete Book of Esther.
- The blessings that are used to be said before and after the reading of the Megillah.
- Original paintings of Purim story.
- Purim songs.
- When you see the name of Haman… touch the name and see what happens… of course you can shake the device (iPhone, iPod or iPad) to get the effect of a real gragger.
