Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Shalom Sesame: The People of Israel is the fourth episode in the Muppets special edition series Shalom Sesame, an educational journey through ancient and modern Israel. Kids meet old and new Muppet friends on "Rechov Sumsum," the Israeli version of Sesame Street, including Grover, Cookie Monster, Moishe Oofnick the grouch, and Kippy ben Kipod, a large porcupine. In this episode, Muppet characters introduce kids to the diverse range of people who make up Israel's population. Viewers meet children who came from all over the world -- Sweden, Russia, Egypt, India, Ethiopia, and the United States -- to make their home in Israel. Also, Mandy Patinkin performs in a music video.
