Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Shalom Sesame: Aleph-Bet Telethon -- Discovering the Hebrew Letters is the ninth 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 episode nine, there's a puzzle to be solved, as all the letters have disappeared from Rechov Sumsum, so Jerry Stiller and Kippy ben Kipod decide to host a telethon. Nell Carter, Joan Rivers, Jeremy Miller, Tracey Gold, and Itzhak Perlman help make the telethon a success. The tape teaches a great lesson in the Hebrew alphabet.
