In the overcrowded world of kids’ content, there is a need for up-to-date, safe, clean, accurate, age appropriate and valuable Jewish production. Kids today are bombarded with audiovisuals from every angle. Their senses, but mainly their eyes, are being attacked through advertisements on the streets, electronic blackboards, computers, pads, phones, etc. There is an opportunity and a need to bring back kids’ ability to listen. Through audio, kids hear and listen, imagine and create for themselves.
Kids are our guarantors. Creating a Jewish audio library for them is a responsibility and a legacy.
That is why we created V’nishma, Inc. V’nishma will be an application/mobile website with high quality audio production. You will be able to search the contents, they will be organized in categories and we will make transcripts, references and sources available.
Schools and after-school Jewish programs offer an incredible amount of audio information that caregivers are not always privy to. V’nishma In The Classroom will bring each program’s content material to the application/mobile website in a private dedicated channel for that school/after-school program, so that caregivers have an opportunity to get more engaged with their children’s learning. If you would like your school or after-school program to be part of V’nishma please contact us.
V’nishma will create a marketplace for content creators, musicians, storytellers, Rabbis and teachers. It will provide known talent a direct and new point of contact to their audience. It will provide new talent a venue to launch or develop a career with a captive audience. But more importantly, it will grow Torah focused and halachically correct content for Jewish children around the world. The goal is to launch our content in English and Spanish and later add Hebrew, French and Russian.
To curate and create original entertaining high quality Jewish audio content for kids 3-6 (and later 6-9 and 9-12) that is Torah focused and halachically correct, safe, valuable and educational. The aim is to engage the youngest Jewish population and their caregivers by bringing back the value of listening and through it motivating creativity, imagination, engagement and action.
Our content will cover all aspects of Judaism in an entertaining way. Here are some of the areas we are working on.

Very often we get asked where our content comes from. We have 5 pathways:
- V’nishma creates original content
- V’nishma partners with co-producers
- V’nishma solicits materials that are already created that can be aggregated
- Schools produce materials for their V’nishma In The Classroom and some of those materials make their way into V’nishma
- V’nishma reviews unsolicited content only when materials come with 2 rabbinical recommendations and/or a direct recommendation from a member of the Board of Directors of the organization
