Thanks to a grant I received from The AVI CHAI Foundation, the video "39 Melachot" can now be viewed or/and downloaded from torahanytime.com at this link: http://bit.ly/fLV6Ea and chinuch.org at this link: http://bit.ly/fTLoMr. While the viewing experiences are similar, Chinuch.org has a better quality download.
“39 Melachot” is the story of a boy studying for a test on the Melachos of Shabbos. His Rebbi appears and takes him on a hands-on tour of all 39 Melachos of Shabbos. While geared primarily for the upper elementary school student, anyone learning suguyos of Shabbos will gain from visually seeing the way things were done in the past. You will see the entire sidura d’pas and view a clear explanation of the loom and the entire cloth making process.
At the length of 30 minutes this video can be used as an introduction to a unit on the 39 Melachot or as a summary at the end.
