[prMac.com] Hoboken, New Jersey - Last week Appy Holidays launched a new, content rich and comprehensive iPad application that teaches our youngsters all about Chanukah, called Appy Chanukah. The iPad app's goal is to provide kids ages 2-8 with a comprehensive, fun, educational experience of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, with great focus on Hebrew language and songs.
The application allows kids to:
* Learn about the Chanukah story and tradition using an interactive eBook.
* Understand, pronounce, read and write key words in Hebrew that relate to Chanukah such as Menorah, Sevivon, etc.
* Learn Chanukah songs such as Mi Yemalel and Maoz Tzur, record themselves with background music, and send the video to family and friends.
* Play interactive games such as light a menorah, 3-level Chanukah Puzzle.
* Send a personalized greeting card to family and friends on email or Facebook.
In addition to the iPad application we also offer a lively community site with one purpose in mind - provide parents with as much inspiration and ideas on how to celebrate and learn about Chanukah together as a family - we update the site daily with blog posts and have some great guest bloggers participating, each a subject matter expert in Jewish Education and Tradition.
If you are interested with experimenting with the app, please email us at and we'd be more than happy to take you through the application or send you a coupon.
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 29.1 MB

Appy Chanukah 1.3 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
"As a mother of two toddlers, it was important for me to bring my kids up with an understanding and attachment to the Jewish tradition. I found it challenging to find one place that offers all tools to help me provide my kids with that holistic experience." Says Alin Wagner-Lahmy, founder of Appy Holidays. "I found myself running between different sites, applications, CDs and books, to provide my kids with an in depth understanding of the Jewish Tradition. Specifically, I didn't find anything interactive and engaging, that could be experienced as a family together, and so I decided to develop one application that could be shared by other moms, that provides everything a parent needs to teach their kids about the essence of the holiday". Alin Wagner-Lahmy decided to bring together 2 more moms with great background in Technology and Education, and bring Appy Holidays to life. "We are now a group of 3 moms from Hoboken and Tenefly who have gathered to provide Jewish parents with an interactive tool to help them teach their youngsters about Jewish Holidays and Tradition.
