With Hanukkah just around the corner we decided to tip our hats (or kippahs, if you will) to some of our favorite Jewish celebs.
Religion education has taken on a whole new meaning since Sarah Lefton, founder and executive director of G-dcast came along. The animated web series promises to not only be a fun 3 – 5 minutes of your time, but it’s also educational, teaching different facets about the Jewish religion from the Bible to the High Holidays.
While Sarah’s already been casting celebrities including The Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik, as voices for her cartoon characters, Sarah gives BettyConfidential the exclusive dish on her dream cast.
