Join the Mother of BimBam media
Kids and adults get to create with a pro in a workshop with Sarah Lefton!
Limmud Bay Area 2016 is thrilled to welcome Sarah Lefton, the founder and Director of Bimbam (formerly G-dcast). BimBam is a new media studio making Jewish videos, apps and animated series that are joyful, empowering introductions to Jewish ideas and life for kids & adults.
Sarah began working in interactive media in the last millenium, at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). She went on to produce projects for The New York Times on the Web, the Village Voice and several children’s toy brands. Taking an abrupt turn for the less corporate, Sarah joined Camp Tawonga, learning about Jewish outreach and wilderness. Inspired by its Yosemite location, she designed the infamous YO SEMITE tee shirt. Sarah is a past President of San Francisco’s pluralist Mission Minyan, and board member of the San Francisco JCC. She was named one of the Forward 50 most influential Jews of 2009, and is a recipient of the Joshua Venture Group fellowship for Jewish social entrepreneurs. As a recipient of the 2012 Pomegranate Prize for exceptional young Jewish educators, Sarah’s participation at Limmud Bay Area is supported through the Covenant Foundation.
