BabagaNewz was a full-color Jewish [values][1] classroom magazine that was published from 2001-08. In 2009 a scaled down version was published online. The publication was for kids in 4th through 7th grade that presents current events, science, Torah, Israel, holidays and traditions through a Jewish lens. Every month during the year, Babaganewz, along with its Teachers' Guide and website at,[2] focuses on a timeless Jewish value that provides educational depth and personal reference for children in their formative years. The magazine has many sections, including "Check It Out" (trends), "Kid Power" (Jewish kids doing great things), "News 'N' Views", and "Babagonuts" (puzzles). On the cover of each magazine, the Jewish month (e.g. Tishrei, Kislev, Iyar) and the Jewish value are vibrantly stated. Online activities include interviews, educational games, and virtual tours of Israel. BabagaNewz is published by The AVI CHAI Foundation in partnership with Jewish Family & Life.

In 2011 Jewish book seller, Behrman House, took over the website and revised the spelling of the name to have a lower case 'N.' focuses on providing resources for Jewish educators which expand the offerings of classroom materials. The site is segmented into the following categories; articles, games, activities, videos, e-cards, music and the teachers' section. The organization has maintained a focus on Jewish values as well as Jewish holidays.
