This year the week of the Jewish holiday Hanukkah started on Sunday 6th of December and will last until December 14th; here at PubCoder we celebrate it dedicating our December app to My Hanukkah. The application created with PubCoder is the brainchild of Andrea Moshi, Yasha Maknouz and Debora Castelnuovo from AppSameach, the small publishing company devoted to teach the holiday of Jewish tradition to children.
My Hanukkah, is the first app of a series of interactive books that teach in an engaging and fun way the story of Jewish people through the most significant holidays.
The app is full of content divided into three areas: the Story, the kid can read and listen with the read aloud feature; the Activities, the kid can play with Play the piano!, Spot the differences and Brachot (Blessings) and finally the Coloring Game Pages.
The fun and colorful illustrations of animals who wear the clothes of the time are created by Debora Castelnuovo and teach the story of Hanukkah in a lively, fun and interactive way.
AppSameach is a project dedicated to spread the tradition associated with the Jewish holidays for children through the use of illustrations, coloring pages, games and interactive books. AppSameach was created by an idea of a mother (Deborah, illustrator) and a father (Andrea, the developer) to enrich the education of their children to Jewish traditions with illustrations and contemporary games.
