EXCLUSIVE: Join Disney Channel Stars in Celebrating Rosh Hashanah

By Beth Deitchman

Over the last few months, ZOMBIES 2 and Disney Fam Jam stars Ariel Martin and Trevor Tordjman have been staying safe in their respective homes, but they’ve found unique and creative ways to come together to entertain fans every day. We’ve seen them go head-to-head in tabletop “olympic” challenges, try to make each other laugh with dad jokes, and even sing the funky hat song from Wizards of Waverly Place. Their latest on-air segment gives viewers—as well as some of Martin and Tordjman’s Disney Channel friends—a closer look at celebrating Rosh Hashanah, which begins this Friday evening.

Tobie Windham (Byron from Just Roll With It), Raphael Alejandro (Matteo from BUNK’D), Elie Samouhi (Elliot from Upside-Down Magic), Sky Katz and Jason Maybaum (Tess and Levi from Raven’s Home) and Ava Kolker (Olive from Sydney to the Max) join Martin and Tordjman in the new video, which you can see right here on D23.com before it begins airing on Disney Channel. The segment dives deeper into the meaning of Rosh Hashanah and some of the holiday traditions, such as the custom of eating apples dipped in honey to wish for a sweet new year. Samouhi even shows off his “Shofar,” a horn used to sound the coming of the new year.

The segment—like all of Martin and Tordjman’s previous installments—was produced remotely with an entirely remote production crew. You can see Martin and Tordjman’s segments daily on Disney Channel and Disney Channel’s YouTube. ZOMBIES 2 is available to stream now on Disney+; Disney Fam Jam airs on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
