Yom Balagan: Movie Making with Sal & Nina Litvak

Ari Polsky  |   26 Jul 2018

Both during Machzor Alef and Machzor Bet, we have invited up a number of specialists and experts to run unique activities for our chanichim. One such activity was with Sal and Nina Litvak of The Accidental Talmudist who created short videos with our chanichim on Jewish values and blessings. Scroll down to read more or watch the videos!


We always seek to explore a teaching of our sages within a fun, action-oriented scenario that keeps the whole group engaged, while producing a completed video they can watch at the end of our class.

We’ve done many chase scenes based on catching a thief or returning a lost object. This year we introduced a new scenario in which a sole survivor saves the camp from a zombie apocalypse with a bracha for revivifying the dead.

We aim to get everyone participating and invested in the process of creation and collaboration, and they love seeing themselves on screen as soon as the shooting ends and I quickly cut it together.
