Various shows on Jewish themes --- Israeli music; Music from the Jewish World; Jewish Holiday Music.
We have also developed shows on a variety of themes including Nature; Doing Your Best; Multi-cultures; Sign Language and Music; etc. If you have a theme, we probably have a show to enhance it with music!
