Year of Family Engagement
from Judy & David
YoFĒ is… The absolute BEST online Jewish programming for young families, customized for YOUR SYNAGOGUE.
“AN ABSOLUTELY HUGE SUCCESS!”
For the past year, synagogues and day schools from across North America – and from across the Jewish spectrum – have partnered with us to bring well-produced, engaging programming to their young families. The response has been universal, “OUR FAMILIES WANT MORE!”.
What does it look like?
See for yourself! Here are a couple recent examples. NOTE: Most of our productions are with a single congregation and are usually just recorded by the rabbi on a cell phone, working from our script. It’s simple, quick, and ends up making a great custom video
How does it work?
- We script and create fun, engaging, beautifully-produced programs and worship experiences for your young families.
- Based on the response of our clients, for the first time ever, our Family Seder Tool Kit will put all the tools in your hand to create a great, interactive, fun family seder. We will provide individual videos for major songs and prayers, plus our famous “Judy & David” version of the holiday story.
- Use some or all of the videos in your live seder or use them in a pre-recorded seder. We can even help you edit them into a pre-recorded seder for a very low additional fee.
Who are we?
We are Judy Adelman Gershon and David Gershon, otherwise known as “Judy & David”. We have produced two national children’s television series in Canada and have sold over 5 million children’s recordings around the world. Our “Rock N Roll Matzah Ball” CD was the first CD mass distributed by PJ Library. These days we spend most of our time working for non-profit ventures. Judy is the Cantorial Soloist and Music Director of Temple Emanu-El in Toronto and is a well-known composer and arranger of Jewish music. David is the Chair of Education Arts Canada (especially when there is such a thing as live entertainment in the world). We also help synagogues to create virtual musical experiences with EnsemblesOnline (more on that later!). For lots more shameless propaganda on us visit HERE.

Virtual Choir: Take it to the Next Level!
Let us work with you to create virtual choir videos to insert in the program! It’s a fun and very rewarding experience for your young families, synagogue choir, youth group, or others within your congregation. These videos will become treasured showcases of your congregation that you can share on social media and as part of services and programming. We just HAPPEN to be one of the world’s leading producers of virtual choir videos, specializing in Jewish music. See http://ensemblesonline.com for more information about our virtual choir videos, rates and examples.
