Subject: [Puptcrit] Jewish Puppetry +

		I'm thinking that traditionally---way back----Jewish cultural 
traditions were more with storytelling, books, and food...
maybe the puppetry would be too connected to Idols and statue making 
that they weren't used often.  ???

		I'm thinking also of the display at the Ballard Museum where there 
were definitions of types of puppets.... marionette had something to do 
with marie...and church .....

		With school aged children,  public and Hebrew schools, I've used  
"Hershel and the Chanukah Goblins" and the Chanukah story.   But this 
is now and you asked about in the past.
